Horn section in a band

  1. By the way, why in the hell isn't Chicago in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame anyways? They've got loads of hit songs. And, they're a great band.

    horn players tend to go where the money is because everyone likes the idea of a horn section, if you have lots of good paying gigs then Im sure they would love to be in your band.

    I'm lucky enough to get to play with a horn / reed section (alto / soprano / bari sax, oboe, trombone, and occasionally a tuba). It really does add something fun!

  5. I used to play trombone, and my drummer is also a tuba player - but we can't figure out how to play 4 instruments at once...

    A university is a good place to find horn players. Why don't you find a collaborator and put something together for a project. Even 2 players can really change your sound and vibe.

    Chicago will get in at some point (as will Peter solo). Horn bands really are fun. Is there a lot of demand for horn band music in beautiful WV?

    we had the pleasure of having long time twin cities horn legend and all around nice guy Merlin Brunco sit in with us recently. One of the great tenor players in the cities.

    BTW, your vocal group is the bomb

  9. I'm sure it would go over really well. In fact, I know it would. Our guitar player also plays sax on a few tunes, and it goes over well. But, it'd be just that much nicer to have a trumpet & trombone player, too.

    Oh, and while I'm at it, I may as well go ahead and wish our keyboard player had a B3 with a Leslie cab, too.:bassist:
