"Here's another new orchestration by Seattle favorite Bruce Monroe. As an adaptation of the original Bill Brohn orchestration for Peter Rothstein's 'chamber' production of Ragtime (cast of 15, orchestra of 15) we were able to keep most of the original percussion book intact.

Seen here are many of my usual stock effects - Remo Spoxe for the Ellis Island bell plates; alarm bell, chanchiki, and tubaphon pipes for Henry Ford's factory; vintage temple blocks and cowbells.

The angled mounting option on the new Grover Pro Miller Machine is a marvelous option for tight setups."

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"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."
