The latest episode of The Brass Junkies podcast features a hilarious interview with trombonist Victor Barranco of the US Army Blues. He talks about the fascinating path he took from growing up in North Pole, Alaska to ending up in Washington, DC playing in one of the premier bands in the world.
He also speaks about how he became handy around the house (as in having his house featured on home improvement websites.) Why is this important? It turns out he used the exact same growth mentality to teach himself how to play jazz and then just a few years later he was the lead trombone in the One O'Clock Band at UNT. He speaks about how it is all about how you approach things.
Lance and I couldn't believe how much we laughed during this episode and how inspiring it was. He will make you go practice and have you in stitches talking about being the only Puerto Rican family growing up in North Pole.
