After last years very successful "Stand Up Comedy Night" I am making preparations for "Music Talent Night". As you may know a group of my friends got together and created our own stand up comedy routines (all original content). It far exceeded my expectations in the quality of the routines and I think everyone had a great time.
Well next is Music Talent Night. In preparation I will probably have to get back into shape to play something on the trumpet, but I have also ordered 5 recorders for a couple of group routines.
Having a decent musical background (combined with the fact that my class learned to play the recorder in 2nd grade) I was SHOCKED to find out that the recorder can play every note (including sharps and flats) for 3 octaves! It's a real musical instrument, not a toy. Which is pretty amazing considering they retail for $4.99, BTW - the recorders these days are translucent and come in blue, red, green, etc. You can also buy a tenor and bass recorder but they get pricey! I'll let you know more as we get closer to Music Talent Night this summer (we need a few months to prepare our acts!)
BTW - I believe we have someone who can play the saw as an instrument! Better put a hole in that wash tub (for a string bass!).
