“Dan Gabel is the most amazing individual: Despite his relatively young age, Dan has amassed an enormous amount of knowledge and experience one would only expect of a person nearing retirement age. His skill as a trombonist and arranger, as well as the leader of his own successful swing band, can be credited to his touring with the World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra directed by Larry O'Brien, as well as his own independent years of collecting, researching and documenting vintage big band recordings. From this, Dan's "ear" is without fault, which is crucial to writing accurate and exciting transcriptions and arrangements. His talent as a trombonist is in demand, and would be a welcomed spot in any band or orchestra. Not withstanding, his ability to copy various styles is beyond reproach. My only grudge is that Dan Gabel is in Massachusetts, and not in Texas -- as we need somebody with his resume and talent down here!”

Thank you to all who attended, and all those who helped put on a great event on July 3rd at SAC Park in Shrewsbury. Mid-70s, sunny, no humidity and a patriotic-themed show that was pure family fun. Want more? Here’s where we’ll be...
