    Which one? There were several! But you know what? I bet they had the time of their lives and probably more than half of the audience was music il-literate and didn't notice.

    Btw, it was Sue Ellens' brother John Bob in Section 236, row 119, seat H. He says he was looking for parking and didn't get a good warmup in.

    HAHAHAHA

    Who cares? Dwelling on the clams is a complete waste of time - even if YOU did it. It's lousy music too.

    yeah, that fanfare is complete crap...who would want to listen to that?

    i like the last note the best...the flat 7 that echoes through the stadium...

    I think someone forgot to have the "when in doubt leave it out" conversation with that group.

    MJ, Sir... with 200+ trumpeters in a stadium... I think you can have that conversation until you're red in the face and no one will listen! HAHA.

    "MY mouthpiece has a DHC in it!" "Hey Bob, let's take the ending up an octave!" "blah..."

    I was there. I guarantee that nobody in the stands noticed. If it weren't for the replay, we would all be very happy with our memories of 1984 (if we could remember that far back). It was about the spectacle - not the KACK's.

    I used to know a player who played that fanfare. he said that none of them were pros. besides even with the very slight crack, it still souded very good. besides it was written by John Williams

    Jeeze this is a tough crowd! I think it was more about the event than the trumpet playing...
