Watch on

This happens to me all the time when I practice at home. 

My old high school was forced to stop rehearsal Tuesday night because of a noise complaint:

“The Brick Memorial HS Marching Band was shut down at 8pm by the police due to noise complaints by the neighbors. We have been told by the police we will be shut down every night if we continue to practice. I hope for the sake of these amazingly dedicated students that this issue can be resolved and the band program of almost 35 years can continue its traditions of excellence. I ask you to share this post in support of the hard-working students of the Brick Memorial High School Marching Band. #LetThemPlay

There have already been several press releases on the subject and they were even on  NBC news. (They can be found here: XXXNBC) So if you guys could help spread this around on all social media with the hashtag #LetThemPlay that would be amazing.

I got to play this horn…and damn, it’s absolutely fantastic…

It’s a bit heavy to hold, but the tone is so dark and mellow. The tone is also very consistent throughout the range. This is a beautiful instrument and an example of fine craftsmanship. It is quite a work of art.

Here’s the blog it is mentioned in.
