  1. such a beautiful night. thanks for sharing :) and i am with you as a fellow band geek!!! i played the baritone horn and EVERYONE makes fun of me to this day for it. i am all too familiar with the ring around your lips…!

  2. That sounds like such an amazing night. And I’m sure it was extra special for you. I couldn’t imagine going through losing a loved one to breast cancer. Thank you for sharing the night with us. :)

  3. he really is an amazing entertainer! my parents saw him in new york this past summer and still talk about how much fun they had. what a great night to bring awareness of an important cause

  4. What an event! So cool that he played your wedding song too- how special. Its amazing how much breast cancer has impacted each and every one of us. I’m glad you guys had a great night- you deserve it :)

  5. I loved his character on Will & Grace! And he performed on The Today Show once and I remember liking it though it doesn’t come to mind right away

      @Evan Thomas, That’s the ONLY way I knew him- as the character on Will and Grace! He said that during the show people would come up to him and be mad and ask HOW HE COULD DO THAT TO GRACE! As in the people thought he was the character! Too funny.

  6. i LOVE LOVE LOVE harry conick, jr! and the best part is my hubby actually looks like him. with good hair ;)

  7. LOL I gave up clarinet (played that for 11 years) for a year to explore the low brass (wanted to be a music major). I found the trombone to be SO fun (and absolutely gross..spit valve blech)! I sprayed the heck out of my mouthpiece with mint sanitation spray, because I rented my instrument too. Ahh…memories. :)

    Also, major shout out to Harry Connick Jr. and this is a guess, was the trombone player Trombone Shorty? He’s getting major buzz now nationally and he is just uber talented. Love fellow NOLA’ians! Glad you had a great time!

      @Amy @ The Nifty Foodie, You are a rock star.

      I am ashamed to say I was so distracted by the beautiful sound that I missed his name. However, I looked up Trombone Shorty and it isn’t him although now I am intrigued by him too!

      Thanks!

    Fellow band geek here. I played the French Horn. Yeah…elephant noises, spit valves, ring around the lips, learning to tap your toes instead of your whole foot during a performance, etc… I love it when I can listen to a movie soundtrack and my ears automatically tune to the horn section. I almost wish I could still play and wonder if it’s like riding a bike.

    And Harry Connick Jr is amazing – I love quirky people!

    Glad you had to pleasure of experiencing Harry Connick Jr. in concert. Not just a ‘singer’ or ‘performer’. A rare talent, indeed. Download ‘I Pray on Christmas’ for your tree decorating Thanksgiving weekend!

      @Alicia, He has a whole Christmas album?!?!!? You just made my day! I downloaded not only that song, but the entire album! Hip hip hooray!

      Seriously- thank you!

      He is a rare talent for sure.
