    I reckon it’ll stop just about anything? they had to use a crane to lift that shit.




    more pictures-

    The orchestra

    Other side of the orchestra. It is fucking cold. My phone said 12 degrees, but a security guard said it was 8. Who knows what the wind-chill was.




    [​IMG]


    Here we have my trumpet next to my personal heavy duty industrial strength heater. I had that fucker cranked up the highest it would go and still barely even felt it. I think it may have kept my toes from falling off though. Also pictured are my flannel pajamas. They were the 3rd of 5 layers I was wearing.




    [​IMG]


    And here is me. Civilian clothes were authorized for this dress rehearsal. Obviously tomorrow we will be in our respective uniforms.




    [​IMG]


    Anyone that’s ever been in the military is familiar with the phrase “hurry up and wait”. This also applies to military bands. we were waiting there for about 40 minutes before they got to us. Did I mention it was fucking cold?




    [​IMG]


    A percussionist in my band contemplates the wisdom of his career choice.




    [​IMG]


    I was hoping the gong would shatter due to the cold. It didn’t happen.




    [​IMG]


    The army herald trumpets. These guys are badass. They had to wear their uniforms though. I felt bad for them.




    [​IMG]


    The national anthem will be sung by an amazing singer in the army band’s chorus, Master Sergeant Caleb Green. I thought it was pretty odd seeing the words on the teleprompter, as he obviously does not need them. Probably there for timing reasons or some shit.




    [​IMG]


    End of the national anthem. In the background we have the Washington monument.



    [​IMG]




    Better picture of the Washington monument. Also shows the crane that was lifting huge sections of bullet proof glass.




    [​IMG]


    My part for America the Beautiful. We are backing up Beyonce on this one. you can see in the music where she begins singing. its a cool arrangement, and she sounds great on it.





    [​IMG]



    Walk on music for obama. Similar to the stuff used at the oscars or the emmys when a winner walks on stage. basically background music. This one sounds very 'epic' though, sort of like a michael bay film. :hsugh:





    [​IMG]



    More walk on music. Also shown behind it is a great piece called Lincoln Portrait by the American composer Aaron Copland. I have played this a couple times in the past, and its neat to be able to do it at the Lincoln memorial. Has a prominent part for a narrator, and I overheard some producers saying that originally obama himself was going to narrate, but backed out for some reason. probably because was of his handlers told him that Lincoln was a filthy republican. so they got Tom Hanks to do it instead. baller son.




    [​IMG]



    Fixed. :hs:





    :wtc::wtc:







    cliffs on me- I’m a trumpet player. I play in the United States Navy Band in Washington DC. Interesting job.


    cliffs on the situation- this production is called “We Are One” – It’s a big inaugural celebration being produced by HBO. Its at the Lincoln memorial in DC, and will feature a shit load of famous people.

    A few of these folks will be backed up by the “joint armed forces symphony orchestra”, which is basically a mix of musicians from the premier bands of the army, navy, air force, marine corps and coast guard. This is where I’ll be, obviously.


    Anyway, love or hate the bama, (I'm pretty sure theres only one opinion here..) it will probably be a pretty decent show with something for everyone.

    You’ll probably even get to see me on TV.

    This will air on HBO for free and on HBO.com live at 2:30pm EST and then again at 7EST. it may be on some other channels too, I'm not sure.


    join me in ushering in a new age of common sense gun laws :ugh:

    dude in the main says he thinks it may be transparent bullet-proof aluminum, not glass.

    whatever it is, I'm sure its the finest that money can buy

    i was looking to get this 26, but the guy was a flake.

    this 27 only comes with one mag and a holster. should i do it? i haven't seen any pictures yet, but this dude sounds way better than the guy with the 26
