    Recently played a concert in a small town, Junee at their Rhythm and Rail festival. The concert had nothing to do with rhythm or rail. Griffith, Leeton, Wagga and Junee bands got together for a concert. Feature Pieces were Holst, second suite for marching band, libertango, Oblivion (Piazzola), Abba on Broadway, Manha,de Carnaval, and Doctor Who, where the whoop, hooo part of the theme was in the tubas.

    Not much of anything right now. New concert group has been slow to start up, and with the wife's HUGE objection to the dance/show band gig, has left me not much to do. Do have some stuff for Easter at church coming up, though:oops:

    Had a concert with a local college (joint concert with our community band) --- about doubled our size with a 120 piece band total between the two groups. We played a few notables "The Cowboys" -from the John Wayne movie of the same title. Forever Holding, Satchmo, Le Perre, amongst a few other band popular songs.
    We have another joint concert with a local high school in 3 weeks adding a few more pieces like "Star Wars and the "Blues Brothers and Police Academy" themes.
    Me on a personal level - practice and scales, tonguing, long tones - trombone and trumpet as well as rehearsing the above listed songs and a few more

    Preparing for a new gig with Munich's ESME Big Band (which is the only English-Speaking Big Band in Germany!). We are rehearsing for a big fashion store opening - the owner is a music aficionado, and likes to see himself as a patron of the arts. The store incorporates a concert hall! Six hour attendance, with two hours real playing time. Free food, free drinks, a new band outfit from the store and a clothing voucher for every member of the band - not bad. And the promise of at least two gigs a year there...

    Been working on some "new" long-lost Civil War brass band tunes/arrangements that were acquired by a friend in an eBay auction. Band books from an Iowa band, I believe, that were in the case with a very rare Eb cornet. We're working them up for a premier presentation in the brass symposium at the Great American Brass Band Festival in June, as well as playing a couple outdoor concerts and a parade there.
