A few weeks before I graduated from college I was playing trumpetwith my band in Pittsburgh in a little club. Right before we took a break from our set I decided to play an arrangement of a Dave Matthews Band song I put together for my band. After we played it I headed over to the bar for some water. This guy came up to me and took me how I did a good job, he liked my sound, the band was tight, our improvisation was great, and the Dave Matthews song was awesome. It took me a while to recognize the saxophone player from the Dave Matthews Band. He took me over and introduced me to the rest of the band. They decided to sign me up and I toured with the band for three years before the band broke up.
