The Trumpet Player

Sam, Danya and the Treehouse Sanctum posse had a great show on Friday night! They came ready to rock in their rock/indie/folk/Americana sort of way.

They busted out some of my favorites and brought in a few new ones, like "The Cup Song", "I Think We're Alone Now," and a brand new one that Sam wrote.

And to help him play that new song, he brought in a musician all the way from Alamosa.

Big D.

Sam sent my dad this new song last week via email and he learned to play it by ear. They practiced it right before the show.

And they NAILED IT.

I cannot tell you how happy this made me.

Really, really happy.
Since he is now a part of the band, I am hoping the powers-that-be in Alamosa will see this as a new work-release program. I am sure it will go over well since musicians have such great reputations for staying out of trouble.

But stranger things have happened.


  1. As Mr. T would say: "I love it when a plan comes together."

  2. it was a truly excellent show, I think the trumpet added a lot to their sound, but maybe its because I just like ska :D

    1. Ha! Ska is fairly magical. Glad you enjoyed the show!
