Lansing did great work on the road with Pioneer as well.


Lansing has been a great addition to the brass staff and we are happy he has taken on the Majors position. The show is agressive and exciting with the brass numbers averaging better than they have for years. Still looking for a few players for the battery which is rare. We could use another snare and 2 tenors, bass is full. Anyone who knows our percussion section over the years it always has had a consistent track record of excellence. All due to Scott Atkins and his dedicated support staff.

Cheers DLD
