    All the players are fantastic, but the guitar player knocked it out of the park! He played some gutsy stuff. He didn't just play it safe. Thank you

    Last week, I, the Crazyman, went to the "Don Ho Chinese" retro restaurant in Quincy and got a pu pu platter to see what might happen. The Army crosses even this out, here with a Quincy Jones piece played with MSgt Danho on the tenor sax. At least everyone has happy faces. My best to nobody I know at Ft. Meade.... Great band, incidentally.

      In a way, yes. If you pass the audition for the MOS (42S) you are awarded the rank of SSG. If you are already in the army and pass the audition you are promoted up to SSG.

      Just like how the conductor slot is a LTC instead of a warrant officer, I would guess that most of the enlisted slots are for SSG and up. That way, you theoretically get your best players in the band that represents you to the world. Besides the fact that I don't see any junior enlisted folks in the video. 😊
