The newcomer to the band, Andrew has been playing jazz, classical, and drum corps trumpet almost his entire life. Which is still less than entire length of time that Roger played Trombone before he played trumpet… In his day job, Andrew is a Software Engineer at Veritas, and instructs high school marching band and drum corps around Minnesota.
When he was seven, Roger’s parents forced him to take accordion lessons, and trombone two years later. In his forties, he settled on the trumpet and never looked back. He developed into a soloist in drum and bugle corps and marching band. That’s why he plays so loud.
Chris has been with the band blowing those low tones for many years now, You’ll here some signature glissandos from him on one of our favorites, Al Green’s “Lets Stay Together.”
