Doc Severinsen, and Harry Kim with Bob Reeves

Doc Severinsen was recently in town performing with his big band so we couldn’t miss the opportunity to hear him live. It’s amazing to think that Doc and Bob Reeves go back over 40 years! We’ve made well over 100 mouthpieces and 75 valve alignments for Doc through the years.

Another great friend and customer of ours, Harry Kim, joined Bob in the audience. You can catch Harry on TV playing with his Vine Street Horn Section.

Be sure to check our our interviews with Doc Severinsen and Harry Kim on our trumpet podcast, The Other Side of the Bell.

Greg Spence and his new Reeves Mouthpiece

Greg Spence was recently in town doing his U.S. Mystery to Mastery Tour when he dropped by the shop for a mouthpiece consultation. We dialed in a Bob Reeves mouthpiece for Greg and he immediately took to it. In fact, as soon as he got back to Australia he used it on the APRA AMCOS Screen Music Awards show.
