News About Ed Copeland

July 27, 2015 at 11:19 AMbschaf
Ed is currently at St. John's hospital, but will move soon to a skilled nursing facility, which has yet to be named. I got a call from his wife who remembers me from the last visit I paid to Ed. He has immediate neurological problems with his left side. She gave me her telephone: 713-859-9668. Calls and visits are much appreciated.

Thanks to those

February 25, 2014 at 11:05 AMtdunn

Thanks to the trumpet players that are checking the web site for dates and posting responses about attendance. I was gone for a while and wasn't checking status but i'm back now and I appreciate knowing who is going to be there and when. Thanks , Milt for bringing the stands but I'm going to bring my rat stand anyway. See you all at the nursing home.

Web Site Looking Good

December 23, 2013 at 10:09 AMtdunn

I was just looking around the website with the name change and other stuff.  It's looking really good you guys. You are doing some good work. thanks. I've been thinking about the gig at Harborview home. We were pretty tight and sounded really good. It was a good room for a lot of reasons. One suggestion I had to Steve was that on gigs like that and others too, that we should bring our own music stands. That would save a lot of work for us and the few that haul and store them especially. There may be some drawbacks that I don't see but I think it would be a win win. We do this in the Bayou Big band and it really looks pretty cool and professional in my opinion. I wouldn't mind playing this place and other homes or whatever like this in lieu of rehearsals. anyway that's about it for me today.  Everybody have a merry Christmas, or whatever you celebrate. Don't eat too much, yeah, right! Looking forward to next year.

Renaming the Band

October 8, 2013 at 9:11 AMtdunn

The process of renaming the band seems to be coming to fruition. We have gone through the several steps of voting and the name that has been voted on the most as being the choice is "Space City Big Band." I think the wish of the band is to have some more discussion on this at the next rehearsal.  I still say that if we, as a band, think that there are few good reasons to change the name from what it is now, then let's not do it. If, however , we think that there is overall advantage, for whatever reason, to change the name at this time, then, let's go forward with it. I for one prefer the name "Space City Big Band" over "Brass, Rhythm and Reeds." I get the feeling that the majority of you are actually ready for a change also. Correct me if I'm wrong when we have the next discussion. Thanks again to everybody for taking part in this process. See you next time.

New Name

August 7, 2013 at 9:32 AMtdunn

I've been bouncing new names for the band off of band members for a while now. We have kind of come down to G-Forse. some say put swing band on the end of that and we might have it. I don't go for swing band so much , because we play more kinds of music than swing. We do some rock, some shuffles, some latin so I would suggest a different ending to the name. Maybe G-Forse Gazz or Jazz. G-Forse Big Band? let me know what you all think. Not sure why I like Gazz with a G, i guess because it continues the G theme.

Here are the photos the St. Martin folks were nice enough to send us this year...2013.  They are in two zip files below.  They are pretty big files (150 mb each), so they may take a while to download.

Can we go to the Website

April 18, 2013 at 1:50 PMtdunn

what's the deal, it must be some kind of demonstration against the interweb, is that right? Something is keeping us away from the info part of our website to check in and say whether or not we can make it to a rehearsal or gig. come on Trumpet players , let's be a good example for a change.
