In the Mood for some Big Band Fun!

Last night’s In the Mood performance was sooo much fun. In this picture I caught most of the sax section and some of the many singers doin’ their thang. I dreaded this gig and discovered that I luv it! In other theater engagements the band is hidden in a pit. In this “USO of days gone by” production, the band is front and center, laughing with the jokemen, swooning to the singers, playing killer vintage music, and even participating in some of the skits. I hope, I hope, I hope I get invited back again in the future. I luvs these guyz.
