Chris Castellanos, horn player from Boston Brass joins Andrew & Lance from Flower Mound, Texas, and explains that he (unlike Andrew & Lance) is not a quitter! From growing up in Las Vegas, to playing in the pit of “Phantom” well over 1,000 times and witnessing a flying trombone, Chris unpacks his versatile career.

He also details his time in three of the most popular brass quintets on the scene today, Boston Brass, Dallas Brass and (most importantly) the Orange Chicken Quintet.

Brass legend Dan Perantoni, Provost Professor of Tuba at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, joins Andrew & Lance to discuss how he initially dreamed of being a jazz pianist. Thankfully for all of us, he ended up participating in nearly every important milestone in the development of nearly every important milestone in tuba-dom in the last 50 years. Dan shares stories about Harvey Phillips, Rich Matteson, Don Knaub and the St. Louis Brass Quintet. He explains how he got into Eastman on sousaphone, details his approach to playing and teaching and how he makes meatballs by the hundred and tomato sauce by the gallon.

This episode was “Stolen from Dan Perantoni.”
