Wow, do I feel dumb! While I'm here, I'll add Ides of March.
no one's mentioned CHASE?!
shame, and we call ourselves a trumpet forum...
I grew up "garage band" doing "beach" music (hey, I lived in VA Beach, that's what they played back then)...but Chase blew me away on their first album (which I still possess), as well as BS&T, Chicago, and on and on, everybody named so far. Played alot of covers of all of them...and then things went "metallic", and the brass boys were excused from a lot of gigs.
("ah"...as he leans back and takes a swig of his beer..."those were the days")
Does anybody remember "10 Wheel Drive"? - Ike & Tina Turner?
Love Jerry LaCroix! All those guys could sing like the lead line of The Blue Devils!
Its got to be the 'Godfather of Soul' (and FUNK)...James Brown. His Horns were very tight, like the rest of the band.
Some other great Bay Area Horn Bands -
Cold Blood (Mic Gillette, Bill Atwood, Max Haskett)
Malo (Tom Harrell, Luis Gasca, Forrest Buchtel)
Azteca (Tom Harrel, Mel Martin (sax) Escovedo Bros.
Hey Bill Ortiz, did you play with any of these groups?
Oh, also don't forget about Mic Sterling & the Stud Bros.
Average White Band ,Commodores, EW&F, Chicago, Stevie Wonder,
George Clinton .
Hey Rick-I had the pleasure of playing with Malo durring the early/mid 80's. Later on I had the honor of playing with both Luis Gasca and Forest Buchtel for a while on bay area salsa gigs-I certainly had lots of fun playing with them. As for the Escovedo bros., I had a couple of stints in Pete Escovedo's band, puting in about 8 years total. I played with Mic on the most recent Voices Of Latin Rock earlier this year-had a great time! bye for now
