About the performers:
Led by founder and trumpeter Brent Booher, the band calls Winter Haven its home but plays across Central Florida and beyond. Brent Booher, a trumpet player and 25-year veteran of numerous bands, musical theater shows, and orchestras from Tampa to Orlando, knew there still had to be a market for real music. Brent knew lots of great musicians, the old school kind, the kind that can sit in with a symphony on Thursday, play a theatre show on Friday, and rock and roll on Saturday night.
Brent met them the way musicians always meet, by playing gigs together. All of them knew that even in an era of Guitar Hero and YouTube, people still need live performances. People still need real get-up-and-dance music. The kind where the audience is as much a part of it as the performers. The kind with an extensive, fat horn section; the kind that is just pure FUN.
