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.

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)
