Not quite 76 trombones

Trombone Concert - Ocean Bones
Originally uploaded by boliyou.

Today at the little neighborhood center where I work, a band of trombonists (mostly retirees, some of them former professional musicians) came in to entertain the seniors and a group of children from the school next door.

They did a good job, playing a couple of military tunes in honor of Veteran's Day tomorrow, and some medleys. We had a lot of veterans in the audience among the seniors, and in the band as well. It was cool when they played a medley of the songs from the branches of the military, and the veterans of each branch stood up during their song.

The band is called Ocean Bones. I hope they come again soon.
