Manny, what's the first rule at BrassBand rehearsal? "There are no rules, only enlightened behavior." What is the second rule? "Always have a pencil on the stand!"
There is nothing wrong with a bit of fair and open competition among the bands, as long as we keep in mind that the worthy competition is the one we have with ourselves - to perform at our full potential .
There's also a taste of the Who's rock musical "Tommy," which, as some might recall, is about a kid who "sure plays a mean pinball." The San Antonio Brass version is more Carnival than Pete Townshend, though.
