LHAB is high demand this springtime, and the musical notes are blooming strong.  We’ve been invited to several events to play for and represent the Longhorn Alumni Band.  Please dust off your instruments, oil the valves, unfurl those flags, and tighten up those drumheads, and come join us at these fun and exciting events happening in your city.

We hope to see you there and the more the merrier!  Let’s make music together again!

We are again invited to this year’s 128th Brenham Maifest parade on Saturday, May 5th at 10:00 am.

Austin players: Meet at Moten Cocketts’ office at Riverside and South Congress at 7:00 am, and we’ll leave by 7:30 am to caravan to Brenham. Let us know if you are interested in joining the caravan so we don’t leave without anyone. email George Moxley

Houston players: We’d love for you to play also, as many have done in the past, and we hope to see you there. If enough players to carpool, contact Tom Staton

For anyone who has not been before this is a lot of fun and they take very good care of us. They feed us well and let us go around downtown TWICE!!!!!!! There is the BBQ, Blue Bell Ice Cream and BEER at the park following the parade. And they always have a very generous donation to the scholarship fund which is what it is all about. We’ll play from a 28-foot trailer for us this year, so there is plenty of room.
