Summer is a big time for the bands I am part of. Lots of things happening. Even when the Minnesota weather doesn't exactly feel like summer, we have begun it musically.
Especially the Big Band.
We started last Friday with a benefit gig for a local animal rescue group, Camp Companion.
Then on Tuesday this week we played for a local day nursery's annual picnic.
Again, it was cool and damp, but the rain had stopped. Finally.
No gigs for a couple weeks then there will be 5 in 8 days at the end of June. A community band concert, the Big Band at a local Ice Cream Social benefit, a parade, trumpets playing the National Anthem at a Twins Game (!!) and then a group of trumpets playing the national anthem at a local DCI (Drum Corps) Competition.
YEP! Summer is exciting... and filled with music. It doesn't get much better than this!
