    Winston-Salem, NC

    My wife and are planning to relocated to the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area.
    Are there any gigs there? I am looking for some professional gigs like big band, brass quintet, lounge work etc. No community band stuff.

    LOTS of Country music. You may be able to find some "culture" though.
    Knowledge is freedom, and ignorance is slavery - Miles Davis

    The difference between a beginner and pro mouthpiece is practice - tobylou8

    Nobody has learned how to play the trumpet. It's endless. - Maynard Ferguson

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!

    There's a faculty member at Greensboro College I know from waaayyyy back. His name is Benjy Springs. He's a fellow trumpet player and he gigs professionally as well. He and I graduated from the same HS a few years apart but he came back and worked with us regularly. I haven't talked to him since 1983 or 1984 so if you drop my name don't be surprised if he says, "who?" His contact info is on their website at Greensboro College Department of Music.
