Q: You guys sound great Love the horns too, not common in local bands. Where did you find this guy? Steve
A: Thanks for your question and your compliment on our sound, Steve. I (the trumpet player) received a phone call at the beginning of last summer from Michael (MITD's primary composer and organizer). He was put in touch with me by the lead singer of Temporary Grace with whom I guest solo with from time to time. I sat in on one live gig and fell in love with the band and the music. I'm happy to say they liked me too! The rest is history. We are fortunate to have a great network of bands and musicians to pool from in our local scene. Everybody tries to help each other out as we all have a similar dream in common. Thanks again for your question!
