Here is the premiere performance of Benjamin Dawson's composition for tuba and saxophone quartet titled Tu(fugUe)*ba. As with live performances, there are some "user errors," but I think Ben did an outstanding job with this for me not to share. Thanks, bud, and thanks to the saxophone guys!

Had a great time working with the phenomenal students at Stephenson High School. Thank you @urpalcal11 for making this happen. You guys made a Stephenson fan out of me. Until next time.

What an honor it was to perform with two of my lifelong musical heroes. I can’t say enough about these two, Phil Smith has been such an inspirational figure in my life over the last two years, and finally having a chance to hear Joseph Alessi in person was an experience I won’t soon forget. #UGABRASSBAND #blessed #tuba #brass #brassband #brassinstruments #brassmusic #trombone #trumpet

Nicole and I have a tradition of eating takeout Chinese food every Friday. Four Fridays ago, inside my fortune cookie, was this little gem. I stuffed it in my wallet and came across it today while getting my debit card to pay some bills. #keepyourheadup #hardwork #fortunecookie #believeinyourself

Excited for this next chapter of my life. Winning a position with the United States Navy Band is a dream come true. The next few months will be challenging, and the timeline for when my wife and I will move to D.C yet to be determined. For now, I’ll keep practicing, working towards loosing some weight in preparation for boot camp, and looking towards the future. Thank you all for your support and positive messages.
