while and got into a little talk. Well I guess he forgot what tune he called because he turns to his right and told that side if the band to play another tune.
He started to count it off and we all panicked. The band was playing two tunes at once. It sounded just like you thought it would! Whew!! Boss caught it and in
about 3 bars he cut us off. I had no idea how he was going to bail out of this one. Well he pulled one of the best saves I ever saw. He turned around in a
split second ant pointed to a guy in the crowd and said" Doesn't this guy look just like that guy" and Boss pointed to our bass trombone player
Joe Barati. Nobody had a clue what he was talking about so we looked at the guy in the crowd and looked at Joe and sure enough they looked like brothers. What
a catch! Beautiful save. The crowd started to cheer and clap. Boss turned a turd into a gem!! Then he said so we could all hear "A Train!" Nice catch
