Downtown brass from left: Jane Jaworski-Andersen (horn), Brian Lund (trombone), Josh Lund (tuba), Marty Rump (trumpet), Bill Kovar (trumpet), Kirk Conyers (trumpet) This group has been the same for the last 2 years.This started with Marty playing from the roof down onto the street 7 years ago. Jane jumped in for the next 2 years and she and Marty played duets. Then they decided they could do better and found a few more players to throw together for an ensemble, and that's what they have been doing for the last 4 years.  We're pretty informal, and just get together to play for Sugerplum, but it is a good gig and we all look forward to it.
