We celebrated my brother-in-law’s 50th birthday yesterday. Turned out to be quite an event. Because he had played with the USC Marching Band a couple of years ago, they arranged to have the 10-piece ensemble play at the party. (If you’re not in Southern California, you need to know that the whole USC thing is a VERY big deal ’round these parts.)
The other ten or so players were kids from the marching band invited to the party, who decided to play along. Yes, my sister passed out flyers notifying the neighbors, and yes, they notified the city in the event someone called the police. Turns out a 20-piece ensemble is really LOUD.
The party in the front yard. People from all over the neighborhood came out.
That would be my brother-in-law playing the bridge in “Heartbreaker.”
Love you, Bro! Happy Birthday!
