Travis Brass Quintet


Travis Brass Quintet
Earlier this week, we had the privlege of seeing a performance by the Travis Brass Quintet. It is one of the six performing musical groups that make up the USAF Band of the Golden West.

It was a great evening with some wonderful music. They played Big Band, Dixieland, Broadway Hits and brass Classics. At the end, they played a medley of the theme songs of the Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force. They asked veterans to stand when they heard their theme song. It was touching to see veterans across the generations acknowledged and I was pleased to see people actually applaud them.

If you ever have a chance to see any of the performance bands of the military - GO! They are wonderful!

I couldn't agree more. It may sound hokey, but whereas I passed on more than a few USO shows I never missed an opportunity to see a military band play when they came to my base/town. Excellent musicians, they are!
