A few band-related things

The brass performance on Christmas Eve went really well. We sounded great, if I do say so myself! I had a wonderful time. We did a good job and I was proud to be part of the group.
Our Hillsdale Community Wind Ensemble rehearsals start back up again on January 9th. My birthday is on January 11th... and Jason is having a party for me on the Friday after that. (January 12th). It's been 18 years since anyone threw me a birthday party. (The last one was in college, a surprise party thrown by my friend Tracy Michalcik).
Jason is a very nice guy from band who plays absolutely every brass instrument that has ever existed on any planet in the universe. He's also the band director at Concord High School. I've mentioned him before in this blog... he's the guy who talked me into eating innocent little baby sheep, (read about that here and here), also he's the guy who accidentally forgot to let me know that one of his summer parties had been canceled. Oops! (read about that here). :)
So, if any ABC group members are reading this... (Kyle? Morgian? Kristen? Dennis?) You guys are invited! Bring a friend! Bring two! Morgen, Lee, of course you guys are invited too.... but I know Morgen has to work that evening til 6:00 (and it's a 2 and a half hour drive from Hartford to Concord), so I promise not to be offended if you don't show up. Still, it'd be cool if you were there!
In other band-related news: remember I'm going to compose a piece for the next band concert. I've decided to re-write a piece I tried last year. I'm revising the whole thing, getting out all the kinks and awkward bits. Hopefully by January 9th it will be sufficiently "fixed", and I can pass out copies at our first rehearsal of 2007!

I am TOTALLY excited for your b-day party! I can't wait cause we are gonna tear up the house yo! This shit will be off the hook and ERRR-body in the house get tipsy!.....Sorry..I have fits where I speak in tongues....:-P

I also can't wait to hear your piece. Dont' worry if you still have to tweak it after the first many different copies of bob's stuff have we gotten ya know? Is it the waiting in Purple piece that you wrote? I can't think of any other pieces that you wrote for band last year that we read.

anyways, I will totally be there and hopefully with Pete in tow. See you on the 9th!

Happy Holidays.
