Come out and play
The Horns of Destiny are back and want you to join their ranks. We had a blast playing for last year's 6th Ave Day of the Dead celebration and are back to light up the night again with music! The group is open to all ages and skill levels on whatever instrument you can play (and carry). We have a couple rehearsals planned for next week before we process for the festivities Sunday, Nov. 2.
Want to join in? Head to feedtacoma.com/hornsofdestiny for rehearsal dates/times as well as a slew of PDFs of music in various keys for various instruments. It'd be great if everyone can show up to at least one of the rehearsals but please definitely email me (or comment below) to let me know you're in and what you play.
Special thanks to Jamie for letting us make use of all the music he lovingly gathered together last year!

|Oh yeah, I'll be playing trumpet and leading the band this year. Should be fun!|

|I have a harmonica that I keep trying to teach myself to play......
That should scare enough people into reconsidering this event...

|Thanks for taking this on Kevin - it should be fun!
Also, I've been trying to track down the drum circle group that showed up for the first (second?) Day of the Dead Procession but haven't had any luck. Anyone know if it still exists?

|I could bring my clarinet! I'd need to get better at it though. I'd probably have more luck with the melodica. Or maybe I could find a keytar...|

|Jamie did a great job arranging all those parts last year. I'm in again if my resonator violin still qualifies as a horn and if there are enough people to drown me out. I've got stings on it an octave lower this time. Maybe we can get wheelchairs to move the tubas this time? I'll see if my Seattle friends will come down again with a C-Melody. And see if they know how to contact that drum-guy from the Infernal Noise Brigade who came to practice last year but couldn't make the gig. I look forward to your conducting and playing. www.geocities.com/stokowskisite/museum/h...|

|Be it keytar, resonator violin, spoons, etc. it's all good. Looking forward to this and to busting out my dusty pep band-esque directing arm waving. ;)|

|I can draw a picture of a sliding trombone if that helps.|

|Hey there, it's the kid with the C-Melody saxophone here. I'll be coming on Monday but can't make it on Wednesday.

This could help, if the picture is life-size.

...and if the picture has a sliding slide-part.
Glad you can make it, Kat. Your marching-band uniform is to die for. Kevin, that "kid" is also (among other things) a theater-organ expert extraordinaire.
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
