Special Friends & Guests Visit Tiger Band Central
On Wednesday, February 23rd - we had the distinct privilege and pleasure to have a "TMF" [aka Trombone Mini-Fest] as we welcomed Professor Richard L. Cryder [Birmingham, AL], Dr. Chris Hayes [Athens, OH] and Tiger Band Gem Alumnus, Mr. Jason Reinhardt [Cincinnati, OH] to Tiger Band Land. Can one ever have too many trombone players around? Answer - No!

Dick Cryder is considered by most to be the leading proponent of the lyric trombone style in North America
