Trumpeter and former Boston Brass colleague Rich Kelley joins Andrew & Lance in a fun conversation about life on and after the road. Rich dropped out of Juilliard, where he studied with Mark Gould, because he had too many gigs! He has played on Broadway, with Meridian Arts Ensemble and Boston Brass and regularly plays with the Boston Pops and the Brass Band of Battle Creek. Shockingly, he’s also a really great guy! We get some great Boston Brass stories along the way, he talks about having perfect pitch and how much fun it is to play in a trio with his two daughters. 

Rich also may or may not have had a mistaken identity run in with the authorities in Altus, Oklahoma.

Charles Lazarus, 4th/utility trumpet in the Minnesota Orchestra joins Andrew & Lance in an interview to discuss everything from producing concerts to Gestalt dream analysis. Charles has grown beyond the typical role of orchestra member to someone who produces concerts for the orchestra on a regular basis. We talk about the long and painful lockout experienced by the Minnesota Orchestra, the ideas of Michael Kiser, and (believe it or not) Esquivel. Charles also explains the importance of clarifying your goals, and the importance of tenacity, access and influence. 

Additionally, we hear some legendary stories from Charles’ time in Dallas Brass including a standoff with the cops and a story about “The Nub.”
