As you already know, I often put down my electrical tools and pick up a trumpet to play with the Gainesville Community Band. For the past three years, on July 3rd, I’ve had the opportunity to perform with the band in front of more than 20,000 people. On Independence Day Eve, at 7 p.m., I will be playing the trumpet at Fanfares and Fireworks on the band shell at Flavet Field. Playing with the band, on the University of Florida’s campus, brings me back to 1971 when I was a music major at UF.
This is a great event to celebrate the birth of our nation by listening to your favorite electrician play the trumpet while watching fireworks with your family.
