We had dueling trumpets tonight, which was awesome as always, but I gotta tell you, I'd love to witness dueling altos one night - Stambaugh and Wigfall throwin' down, workin' off each other. Maybe add Brandon Fields and Rocco Barbato to the mix, LOL, and the room would explode, having reached melodic critical mass.
Hey! I know! We could call it "The Las Vegas Altos"
Danny Falcone and Gil Kaupp. Dueling trumpets. They got a huge roar from the crowd, they ripped it up so fine. Wow, man...
Below, the relentless attack of the Lopez Brothers...
Below, Nathan Tanouye, Bad to the 'bone...
More to come, stay tuned. 2:41 a.m., let me post this first installment...
Interesting set list tonight. Legacy tunes, nothing from the new CD at all. Give 'em a rest. IIRC, it went something like this:

- You Don't Know Me
- Oh, Nena
- Ev'rybody Wants To Love You
- Come Together

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We'll do it again next Monday.
