Re: Building a following for a big band

Combine the shows with various high school jazz ensembles as openers to bring in people following those folks, too.

Re: Missing a page from "Front Burner" (Nestico)

I don't have a copy in my band's library, but you can buy that single part through the website "https://pdfbandcharts.com/-/PDF_Band_Charts/PDF_Band_Charts.html". I have used the site for filling in missing parts for LOTS of charts our band was missing. They have 2 versions of Nestico's "Front Burne...

Re: Need second page of 1st tbone Cacavas arr. American the Beautiful

Our local high school has a copy and will get it to me, but the director is on vacation, so it may not be until next week. Hope that works.

Re: Need second page of 1st tbone Cacavas arr. American the Beautiful

The band I thought might have it does not. Have you considered borrowing the conductor's score and create the second page yourself from the score? You can get free music notation software that will help you, or write it yourself on staff paper.

Re: Need second page of 1st tbone Cacavas arr. American the Beautiful

When do you need it? I though it was for tonight. I know another community band with a large library that I can check to see if they have it if there is enough time. I also checked several university libraries but found nothing there.

Re: Sousapalooza!

The Chicago event had the Navy Band Great Lakes as the base unit (18 including the conductor) plus about another 20 from the public. It sounded great, what with no rehearsal and sight reading most of the charts. Good balance across all the sections, with 5 trombones. Played outside Wrigley field sho...

Re: Lo-jacking your bone

Have not tried it, but there are several pet tracking devices out there, some with no subscription fees. I was just looking at Findster (getfindster.com) as a no-subscription option, but the battery life is not long, and the range is only .5-3 miles, depending on topography.

Re: Rolling Thunder March

According to the score on the JW Pepper website, there are 3 Tbn parts. 1st and 2nd are the same except for a few split notes on longer-held chords. 3rd part is written separately, but it appears to be identical to 1st/2nd except for just a handful of measures.

Re: Making a Video Collage

Following on the reference to Christopher Bill, he answered a question during his ATW presentation where he listed exactly what equipment and software he used. Very Interesting. Check out the Day 2 presentation where he started at 5:45 EST. He played for about 20 minutes then started the Q&A.

Re: Conn 71H

I also have a 1970s 71H, but have not seen a lot of comment about these horns on this site or TTF. I find mine a little stuffy in the low C and D region (with trigger), and I'm wondering whether it is the horn or my chops. Otherwise, I also love the sound from the horn.

Parduba Double Cup mpc

My alto sax-playing father just mentioned a Parduba double cup mpc for trombone to me that I had never heard of before. I'm intrigued, but is it a gimmick, a fad, or something worth looking into? It does not show up in my Picket mouthpiece comparability app, so I'm wondering how their sizing compares?
