My Peeps
We set up the front page endorsements back when we first built the website, but never updated it... I'd like to thank and appreciate ALL my folks who drive quite a distance to stop by - it amazes and humbles me. (The notes you guys leave on the bathroom wall crack me up...)

Joey Tartell, John Rommel and Edmund Cord from Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University - and while I'm there, let me also acknowledge Peter Brockman, Carl Lenthe, Brent Wallarab, (wow!) David Baker and (by the way) Ron Sebben even called and came up.
Randy Salman, Lennie Foy, Craig Pare', and Geno Smith from DePauw - Mark Buselli and Will Frazier from Ball State - Mo Trout, Jay Gephart, Ishbah Cox, Bill Kisinger (retired), Al and Gladys Wright and the whole gang at Purdue University - Boiler Up!
The Indianapolis Symphony Members including Chappy Perry, Allen Miller, Bob Wood, Carl Lenthe, Jared Rodin, Loy Hetrick, Ned Boyd, Marty Hodep, Bill Rowe, and Shaun Cooper.
All my guys from the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra, The Steve Allee Big Band - I am in awe - and it was also so much fun to play on a project with Steve Robinett at Bob and Tom's Static Shack Studio with Gary Mielke!!!
Shout out to my Chicago friends Mark Colby, Cary Deadman, Kirk Garrison, Phil Hession, and Bob Lark.
The rest of my Indianapolis area faculty and independents including Jeff Conrad, Terri Ewigleben, David Wisler, Randy Baughn, John Holt, Tom Meyer, John Vanderguenst - and the guys I'm also blessed to be able to call for gigs including Steve Woerner, Jay Young, Mike Stricklin, and Kenny Phelps you are the man! OMG - Let's do it again!
Thoughts and prayers for my Mentor and second father Tony Zamora.


And for those traveling through we've done repair for the Boston Brass, the Dallas Brass, the Jazz Knights, the Airmen of Note, and New York's, Ronnie Cuber, Dick Oates, Mike Marcus, and Vito Deiterle as well as many Purdue Convocations headliners...
We've also had horns in the shop from the Glassmen, the Phantom Regiment, the Blue Devils, The Indiana Star (reunion), and the Cincinnati Tradition.

Life is pretty awesome sometimes... I also get to do repair for over 4,000 band students just in Tippecanoe County alone, and one of them *might* just be the next Wynton Marsalis...
It's mutually beneficial.
As Jose Sibaja would say, "How cool is that?!?"
