All right monday, let’s do this! Time to grind. 🎺🎢
Today marks 10 years of being off cruise ships!!! Its really hard to believe that I have been off ships for this long, no idea where the time has gone. I worked for Carnival Cruise Lines as a trumpet player for six years and they were some of the best years of my life. Some of the best friends I ever made were on ships and I miss them all greatly. Today I feel completely blessed to be making a living doing what I love on land! πŸŽΊπŸŽΆπŸ™ŒπŸ»
Have you checked out @divitttrumpets yet? Best horns I’ve ever played. πŸŽΊπŸŽ‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»‍β™‚οΈπŸŽΆ
My goal is to be better than I was yesterday. To improve myself. To enrich my life. I am running my own race. I compete with no one but myself. This is my journey. 🎺🎢🎺
#motwtour last night was just insane, words can not even describe. The @thetnkids & @regiment_horns took us all to school last night, Such an epic night!! Big shout out to @victoriaacox for the early birthday floor tickets!
Shout out to my buddy @koreyriker - I first met Korey working on cruise ships, we actually signed on our first ship ever together - the good old Carnival Elation! Now Korey is touring the world with @johnlegend and has his own new record out #ptsd Volume 1 that is dope AF! Check out his record and hit him up for a shirt! —————————————————— πŸ“Έ #grainoftruthphotography

Big shout out to @jimmysmith76 - this refurbished Ray Robinson Cup Mute from the 1930’s is ridiculous! I’ve always wanted one of these mutes, they sure don’t build them like they used too! Hit up Jimmy on his Facebook page at Smith Mute Restorations! 🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺
My refurbished mutes from @jimmysmith76 just arrived! I’ve wanted these 2 exact mutes for a very long time now, Can’t wait to try them out tonight! Check out Jimmys fb page at Smith Mute Restorations!

Diving into the wonderful world of effect pedals again! I used to play with pedals all the time until they got stolen on a gig a few years ago. Ssoo much fun!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
