Here’s just a few…

“Being a typical modern teenager, I never knew a brass ensemble would ever sound this pleasant to listen to until now. Thanks NPR for posting this :)”

“you guys are awesome if you really work on that you be playing pro.”

“Best 17 min and 53 secs i spent ever”

“the trumpet players’ ray bans are sick.”

“man i love that trombone player”

“where is the vocals?”

“Thanks for the political jab at Bush, Douglas. Couldn’t help yourself, right? Twilight of the Dogs. What a clever, dyslexic title. 1-20-09 was such an inspirational day for you. Transfer of power, and all that. Here it is roughly seven months later. R U proud of the job your messiah is doing? So vastly superior to Bush, right? Uh huh. obama and his administration remind me a lot of your music. Cataphonic. Ever hear of separation of music and politics? Try it sometime. It’s nice.”

“they should play ska music, cause we all know the best music involving horns is ska, true story.”

“i agree with chewbacca”

  4. I love the band, and I’m sure we’ll hear much more from you guys as time goes by. As far as titles and what inspires tunes…I actually think that Dave’s explanation for creating “Twilight….” was very respectful given the nature of the subject…you may not agree with the politics, but Dave and every other artist has the right to express their might not agree, but don’t crush him for it..especially when you have FOX news spewing it’s venom in all directions, unabated and unchecked.
