"The setup is simple with a few added things for Sound Effects in the show.

No room for a marimba or chimes so I used a xylophone with mallets played an octave lower for the marimba and chime notes. Crotales were played on a Wurlitzer 1919 Concert Bells.

Miller Machine made quick changes easy!”

"When I first got the call to start working on Ain’t Too Proud - The Life And Times Of The Temptations, I was curious about which era the show was going to focus on. Their career began in the early 1960’s and they’re still releasing albums today."
"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
