Patriotic DMHO

Denver & the Mile High Orchestra was back in town tonight, this time performing at our church in a patriotic celebration. The turnout was very good, considering it was a mid-week production.

If my count was correct, DMHO performed 17 pieces, five of which were patriotic tunes like God Bless America and Battle Hymn of the Republic; they started out the evening with The Star-Spangled Banner. Four or five of the songs they had performed on The Next Great American Band and two of the remaining songs were new pieces for the band.

Once again, my best friend, Eric, got to play with the group on a few numbers, which beefed up a trombone section that was missing Kenn Hughes. And the last half of the evening saw our church choir join the group, although I frankly couldn't hear them over the sound pumping from the platform!
