2006 – Bruce with Peter Costello, Federal treasurer.
A local Federal promotion with a friendly and approachable Peter Costello… I was there to provide some Light trumpet background music that enhanced the evenings light refreshments… with no song introductions or attention required, and I was able to play anything I wanted that suited the ambience.

Christmas time is always a treat… Xmas music is generally always well received – especially with trumpet, so it seems! Christmas tunes on trumpet or flugal horn.
2004 – I played Trumpet with other instrumentalists at a City of Casey Ward Dinner.

US & CANADA TRUMPETING…
In Nov 2018 I went on a trip to Canada & New York… took my trumpet along and had the chance to play in a local pub in Gastown, Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada).
While visiting Canada it was a simple flight across the border into the US, I decided to go along to one of the local pubs in Manhattan, New York where I had the chance to play a some trumpet tunes.
