A great night

It sure was. Last night, my vocal jazz ensemble sang the national anthem at the Cleveland Cavaliers game. To say it was fun would be an understatement.

The night began with a lot of waiting around. We went downstairs to the “event level,” where only staff and the Very Wealthy (the ones who paid $700 for floor seats and $1000 for courtside) were allowed. We watched while the VW ate and drank from a free buffet and open bar.

But then it was time to go on. I wonder if the students thought it went as lightning-fast as I did. It was a great experience, and they sang well – their sound (with the help of some boss mics) filled up the whole arena, and was easily heard – and hopefully enjoyed – by all 20,000 in attendance.

Below are some fotos of the gig – click on them to get the full monty. And when I get the DVD, I’ll post some video here.

Oh yeah – and the Cavs won. How about THAT?
