Where is the concert band?  Although I live in Los Angeles, Jackson,
Michigan is my home away from home!  Along with going to Interlochen
up north, I went to the Michigan School of the Arts, played with the
Jackson Symphony for a few years, toured with the "Rosier Players" and
perform in Jackson every few years.  I headlined at the "Footlight
Theatre" 3 years ago, entertained at the Shakespeare Festival a couple
of years ago, etc...  I love Jackson, please fill me in via the list
or privately at your discretion.

Subject: Survey!

While fiddling around with JavaScript, and updating the archives, I
also set up a simple subscription form for the list (not that *you*
need it - you're already subscribed), which you can see at if you're curious.
Then I added a little survey to the bottom.  Then I thought, "What
about people who have already subscribed, or don't want to subscribe
but still want to indicate their interest?"  So I set up another
form, sort of a already-or-won't-be subscribed form.  For anyone who
cares to indicate what they play/own/want, there are simple
checkboxes.  The form is at, and results are posted
at  The 4 respondents
includes my own.

   That sale price is funny because when I was in Internationa Brass and Woodwind over the summer looking for a bass clarinet, I asked the guy, just out of curiosity, how much he'd sell the contrabass sax for.  Back then he said $19,000 or $20,000.  He said it had spent way too much time in the store and he wanted to get rid of it.  Too bad for the poor sap who bought it.  (sorry I'm a few days behind).
