Opa Opa On Tour!
We had Oswaldo Bernard, the band leader of L.A.-based latin band OPA OPA, in the shop to pick up a new mouthpiece for a friend (what a great friend, huh!) and have us do some work on his horn. It turns out he’s taking off to go on tour to Costa Rica and then on to New York for a week. If you are near New York in September, see if you can swing by and check them out. They will be in Battery Park on Sept. 8th and in Tropical Reflections in Brooklyn on the 11th. Check their web site for more details.
One of the best parts about working here at the shop is that when our customers leave with a mouthpiece or a valve alignment, they often leave their CD’s behind! We’ve been listening to both of OPA OPA’s CD’s (Mojaditicos & Los Paisajes) all day and we highly recommend picking them up from either their web site here, or from iTunes.
It was great seeing Oswaldo, and I have to admit it would be kind of nice taking off to Costa Rica and New York for a few weeks, but he didn’t have any more room in his luggage!
