Playing "Cabaret" in San Jose

Lots to talk about! Sorry to have been away from the blog so long, but I keep needing to take breaks and reinvent this thing. I've yet to officially launch the site as "completed", but it's coming soon, I promise -- almost there!

I've been playing trombone and tuba in a three-ctiy production of "Cabaret" for the last month and going through the middle of May, and I'm having a great time on a great gig. I've met many talented people -- all of whom I hope to stay in contact with for many years to come.

I've also had a great time documenting the process.  With my T-Mobile Dash and Kodak C813 for stills and video, I was armed at all times -- although I will admit in hindsight that I missed some great moments, only because I was too busy enjoying them!

I'll be posting many more detailed posts about this gig in the coming weeks, but to wet your appetite, you can check out all my photos on Flickr, and here is a video of me doing my make-up:
