    Finish playing your solo greatly then pretend to trip and then run and catch up with your line.

    However "good" you are...my suggestion is...I'd never "do" anything "cute" that could result in a damaged horn, regardless of how "cool" it looked. Damage costs money and time to fix, and no one will remember your greatness while you're putting out big bucks.

    Just play EXCELLENTLY, and do the "less is more", but DEFINITELY keep a grip on your horn.

    How about a gesture of acknowlegement for the rest of the band, turning and reaching out toward them with your open hand, like you see the soloist do on stage after an orchestra concert. They do, after all, provide your accompaniment. It's not a trick, but fairly classy.

    Pull out a beer and chug it, but spill more on your face/uniform. That get's 'em EVERYTIME.

    Run down to the end of the field and slam dunk your horn over the goal post crossbar. That will show them......

    You could run up and dropkick the drum major off the conducting stand... That's another one of my signature moves.

    Or get a GIANT sandwich and eat it really fast afterwards... I'm talkin like 2 bites.... if you're a real man - just 1 bite.

    I always liked to watch football players touchdown celebration, a lot of thought goes into those and for the most part, they are entertaining.
