I play trumpet in the band and act as MC at local events. Nothing makes me happier than the positive feedback I receive from the audience while emceeing and the favorable comments they give us after a performance. The band consists of a variety of people, including veterans and young players and both men and women, but we are united in enjoying playing during our performances. We will continue playing so that many more people will enjoy our performances.
