I was a 100% band geek in high school. All the stuff I do with my cover band today can be traced back to 6 years of marching and concert band. In a previously-posted photo, you can see me playing the trombone. In the photo below, that’s a baritone horn.
What does it all add up to? Lower brass roots, baby. Anyone who’s ever been in Band knows that there is a long-time feud between upper brass (trumpets, etc.) and lower brass. And if you’re wondering, yes, lower brass is much cooler.
What about you? Any other band nerds out there? What did you play? Was there another section of the band who you didn’t like? Those stinky trumpeters, perhaps? By the way: How do you make a trombone sound like a french horn? Put your hand in the bell and miss a lot of notes. BOO-YAH. Back up.
as of freshman year, I was the
illegitimate son of Rod Blagojevich.
