Great Dixieland start to the show. The horn line is a mix of marching and concert brass. Low brass, for example, is all on concert euphs and tuba, while the middle horns are all marching mellos. Percussion is a trap set player.

DM is now talking to the crowd, explaining why they picked the music they're playing (hint: COPYRIGHT).
