Every summer my church puts together a "German folk/polka band" that plays in parades and stuff like that. This will be my first time, and I have never heard them. They said it's mostly waltzes and polkas.
Now, it's mostly ameteur musicians and I've been promised that I will have no problem making lead (even though I'm a comeback player of fewer than 8wks).
I'm looking for suggestions on what kind of sound I could go for, something that I could get the other players to emulate so we sound more authentic along with having a good time. Everybody will be playing trumpets I'm sure.
Should I look into different mouthpieces or anything like that? (cornet, etc?)
