Two of Five

I am currently in the middle of five gigs in 9 days. The first was the Rochester Big Band playing for the Friday evening under the bridge concert in Wabasha, MN. Here's a video of the band doing Summertime from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess.

The sound is a little echo-y due to the way it bounced off the bridge which connects Minnesota and Wisconsin. (This is also for number three on Monday when the RBB played at an Ice Cream Social at Mayo Park.)

The second of the five was the Rochester Community Band concert last Saturday.

Here's a video of one of the numbers, Arban's Fantasie Brillante with superb trumpet soloist, Ashley Hall. I swear her trumpet has some things in it that mine doesn't.

I was worried when I had the bike accident that it might get in the way of the next two gigs, but it looks like everything will be just fine.
