A little Good Lovin’ from the Robbie Lane & The Disciples gig today. Two trumpet gigs are always some much fun, especially when it’s with my good buddy Ewan! @divitttrumpets . . . #goodlovin #robbielane #50s #60s #rock #rnb #live #livemusic #buds #livemusicvenue #thedukelive #yyz #queenstreet #eastend #toronto #horns #trumpetplayers #music #highnotes #trumpetplayer #trumpet #trumpets #tomusic #torontomusic #416 #torontomusicscene #trumpeters #hornsection #havehornwilltravel

I LOVE playing and recording with singer/songwriters and Dave Pomfret @sweetdaveyp is one of the best here in Hamilton, Ontario. I am on both of his albums and they are both awesome! Here’s a small clip from his first record “No Rush. “ The tune is called “21 seconds” and it’s one of my favorite tracks I’ve ever played on. Crazy to think that this was 9 years ago! Recorded by @glenmarshallproducer & @thresholdrecordingstudio - You can find his record “No Rush” and his newest record “A Devils Urge” on Spotify, Reverbnation and iTunes.
#tbt 8 years ago playing at a friends wedding. Crazy to think of how many weddings I’ve played in the past 8 years, gotta be close to 1000 by now! • • • • • • #musician #wedding #gig #jazzy #trumpetplayer #flugel #flugelhorn #flügel #trumpet #trio #jazz #cocktails  #somanyweddings #overtheyears #work #8yearsago #timeflies #music #photo #fun #still #lovemyjob #suit #musicianlife #bestlife #funlife

Gig got canceled tonight 👎🏼👎🏼 Hangin’ at home tonight with @hal_leonard ‘s play along cds. Here’s a chorus on “In A Mellow Tone!” What do you think of this 🎥 angle?!
I got a new tuning slide for Christmas! It’s a single joint nickel silver slide, the upper slide tube is part of the crook and the bottom tube is separate. Thanks Ewan @divitttrumpets this horn really burns now! • • • • • • #trumpet #tuning #slide #nickel #silver #christmas #trumpets #trumpeter #trumpette #trumpetplayer #🎺 #trumpetswag #trumpetlife #flugel #flugelhorn #beauty #sizzle #burnin #canadian #canadianmade #ontario #toronto #yyz #yyzdesign #yyzmade

One of my all time favorite records is Gumbo Nouveau by @nicholaspayton. I’ve been working on lifting wild man blues for awhile now, definitely my favorite track from the record. If you haven’t heard this record go out and buy it, some of the finest trumpet playing you’ll ever hear! #bam #jazztrumpetvideo @divitttrumpets
My old man is cooler than your old man! He has built 14 sail boats, 30 houses and this is his first car. He started building this car in 2007 and it’s almost complete. All he has left is to tune the engine, driveshaft, brakes and tires! He’s hoping to have it done for next summer, we be turnin’ some heads, “What the hell is that!”
“Some days you get up and you put the horn to your chops and it sounds pretty good and you win. Some days you try and nothing works and the horn wins. This goes on and on and then you die, and the horn wins." - Dizzy Gillespie

These buttons tho! Can’t say enough good things about this Adams F2 flugel, so glad I went for it at ITG in Hershey. It’s an absolute beast of a horn. If your in the market for a flugel make sure your check out these amazing horns! . . @adamsbrass @austincustombrass @beauty_trumpet @trumpet_worlds
Working on some high notes, the high Bb has been hanging me up forever. Think I’ve almost found the slot! @divitttrumpets
Some of my favorite tunes to play are tunes from the 1920’s. I first heard this tune “Dinah” on a Louis Armstrong record and loved it. The music was written by Harry Akst and first introduced by Ethel Waters in 1925 at the Plantation Club on Broadway.  @christiancowsill @divitttrumpets @epiphone @jazzvideo @trumpet_worlds
Just got @tonyglausi ‘s new Christmas record! This afternoon I lifted my favourite track I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Really cool to see my name in the liner notes, glad I was able to have a small part in this project. Congrats on a great record Tony! • • • • • • #tonyglausi #illbehomeforchristmas #jazz #trumpet #transcription #solo #trumpetplayer #trumpeter #trumpets #music #jazzsolo #musician #fun #christmas #record #recording #🎺 #trumpetsolo #lift #pretty #close
