So, some of you may know about this marching band project that I've been talking about for the passed few months. It's called the Asphalt Orchestra and we're going to be playing at the Lincoln Center's Out of Doors Festival in mid-August. These shows are totally FREE too, so if think you can make it, you should.
The group is compiled of members of Bang On A Can (a contemporary music group based in New York) and some great players, performers and composers from all over the country. We're a 12-piece band with 3 drummers, 1 tuba, 2 trombones, 2 trumpets, 2 saxophones, 1 clarinet and 1 piccolo. I'm looking forward to playing great music with this group.
This is some recent buzz about us:

I'll be keeping you up to do date with that project for sure.
