NC Pride Band May 17th.
Went to see the NC Pride Band (as in concert band) concert tonight. I didn't know what to expect, and my heart sank during the first number which sounded note-y/play-by-numbers, and I heard intonation problems throughout.Fortunately, the rest of their playing was pretty solid and fun. The Duffy piece called Snakes was mercifully short. (Snakes in a band!) And they had a sax quartet play, and I liked them (I'm not fond of sax). And there was a jazz band from Atlanta (called MetroGnomes, heh) that was excellent. Now I want to play in a jazz band. (I still don't want to play sax, though.)

Great Show, Great to see it again. (Blogger ate both my previous write-ups so I'm not writing any more.)
