Hamilton Place! I played there many times in the three years I was a member of the NAO myself! Played S. Fantastique last season with the HPO there too. The best was when they shipped in bus-loads of kids for the school shows. Is Boris still doing his head-shake vibrato on "The Rattlin' Bog" number?

Sure, we weren't the greatest marching band and definitely not the greatest band, but there was no where else I would have wanted to have been.

I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank tubist and conductor of the band Clive Zwanswiniski
to take us to a winning place in the 1st section.

This Band, Alexander Brass - named after a pub, is a bunch of old bandsmen
just getting together a few times a year to do this and the nationals

I believe that Travis (Mr. Stone) and I are the only Tubenet folks on here. Travis is flashing his low brass gang sign, and I am to the extreme left in the front row of this photo.

They might be heavy, but they sound awesome. None of us have used one, but several would probably suggest Dr. Beer first.

Not a "Low Brass Section" but this is the Allure of The Seas Orchestra following our New Year's gig last night (somewhere between Haiti and Jamaica) with a cameo from the captain (who doesn't actually play, but he likes to joke and we play along for a good laugh)

Last night was the Last concert for one of the guys that plays with my symphony. He's moving to DC because his wife is going to be in the ceremonial band

He wanted a section pic, so here it is
