Duffy tells some Duffy stories--it really is first rehearsal!
Samantha Dixon is not so sure about her bass drum.
Trumpets sit all in a line. So do most other sections.
Danielle doesn't know she's pointing to South America. Morgan does.
What attractive squosh! Sophia, Clare and Isis make a delightful trio.
JD and Julie don't realize the degree of theatrical posing required by the squid section. Natalie and Zachababy demonstrate.
Mommy strikes an action pose. She's ready for bull-riding or managing.
B is for blurry and for basses.
KBB makes happy faces...
Elliot waves his arms.
There's some serious instrument-playing going on here.
Rachel leads the clarinets to glory. And by leads to glory, I mean sits closest to the camera.
What a mighty clarinet army! Rachel, Diallo and Bowen make a wonderful addition.
Destiny piccolos with her legs crossed. Carlene, Siobhan and Sarah aren't so sure about this method.
Elliot continues to conduct. This is a theme.
Bradley, Monica, Yuan and Martin react to something to the left. (I hope no one minds my dislike of the oxford comma...)
Hey band. Crash crash.
Andi threatens me with a saw. Liya pretends to not notice.
Whatever Andi is doing here is strange enough to attract Erin's attention.
Liya and Alex smile nicely for me. Nat is perhaps too engaged in rehearsal.
I am such a fan of Caroline Bank. Especially in this picture. BeccaFine and Erin smile nicely, but there's no comparison.
John is chill. Caroline is still facially wonderful. Alex, Nathan and Machiste look at music.
Not so sure what I was going for here, but only Carlene seems to be judging me for it.
Tasia cools off the band. Thanks, Tasia!
What's it like to be a social chair? Alison and K'Carter's faces say YAY!
Jared attempts squidding but attacks the cucumber shaker a bit too zealously.
Zachababy shows off his new default photo pose. Everyone else hand-cymbals properly.
Patrick, Gonzo and Vincent drum diligently.
Ask again what it's like to be a social chair and the answer is a bit more owlish.
Shanaz hydrates! Hurray for water!
Too much KBB, not enough basses! Sebastian, Gloria, Skylar, Frances and Daniel crowd around three drums.
I can never come up with any interesting captions for Elliot waving his arms.
Over the shoulder stealth clarinet shot time! Hi, Casey Watts!
Katie Haas stealth attacked too!
The photo features prominently the divide between KBB and the rest the band.
Maria almost falls backwards with cymbal-lic enthusiasm.
Four shiny sousaphones all in a row.
Alan is very surprised I made it all the way to this side of the BRoom.
I think I know Sam Jacobson well enough to post extreme close ups of the side of his face while he's playing trumpet up on the internet.
Gonzo wears sunglasses (on her head) indoors. Jessica does not.
Elliot undergoes a moment of rapture.
