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.
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.
The summer heat is starting to die down here in Valencia, California as Bob Reeves Brass prepares to visit Japan again.
From September 19th to the 28th Bob, John, and Brett will be in Japan to do valve alignments, consultation, and presentations. This will be our fourth year in a row visiting our dealer in Tokyo, Japan, Joybrass.
The following day, September 21st, we will be giving a presentation with Noah Gladstone of the Brass Ark debuting our new trombone mouthpieces as well as a talk on trumpet equipment and custom work.
