    Surprisingly (or not so) Taps does have a bit to do with beer. The German Zapfenstreich and Dutch doe den tap toe have to do with turning off the taps on the beer kegs so the soldiers would return to their barracks.

    Back in college, in North Jersey, the only work I could get as a trumpet player was in Latin bands.

    This is me back around 1980, in the back on the right. It was a typical Latin band -- piano, bass, 3 horns ... and 15 percussionists. :-)

    In this part of the country (East Coast/ Carolinas and VA) we have "Beach Bands" which typically have horn sections.

    Rock/Funk/R&B/Disco bands with live horns as opposed to sequenced or digital/keyboard horns are referred to as "Horn Bands" where I grew up

    Your experience may vary....

    Los Blues, a group from the southwest, they only recorded on album in 71 for United Artists and I have it on vinyl. Great horn section, great musicians from top to bottom. Saxophonist, Cleto Escobedo was a member. His son Cleto Jr.leads the band on Kimmel and I believe Cleto Sr. plays with them. They go by Cleto and The Cletones. I don't know if they are still the house band on Kimmel, I can't stay up late enough to watch.
    YouTube has some audio clips of Los Blues from their only album. Worth checking out.
    I don't recall seeing Earth Wind and Fire mentioned in the thread, another great horn section and a great band.
    Blood, Sweat and Tears with Lou Soloff, Dave Bargeron, Fred Lipsius and Chuck Winfield were killers.
    I have always liked the sound of Chicago's horns. Lee Loughnane is a very fine player. He's got a really nice, warm sound but is not mentioned in a lot of threads. Not a screamer but a vastly underrated player.
    Tower Of Power still kicks butt.

    Am I the only one who remembers the term "dance band"?

    I'm just going to assume that such a band is playing for tap dancers as is very distinctive music, whereas TAPS is officially sounded by a solo instrument.
