Introduced to Bocci by Pete “Bone” Maurer, who was a co-member of Crystal Ship. “When Pete called me to fill in on a gig I was excited to play with a 3 piece horn section again. When I heard the originals off the album, I was excited to play with the band. After the gig I felt like I was playing with these guys for years. Now I can say I’m in the best horn band around.”
