‘Why we joined the union’
Volume 116, No. 7July, 2016
I joined Local 802 because I would like to make music and pursue my musical career without the worries that follow some artists in this business. I recently performed on the same billing as R&B singer Monifah Carter and I also had an interesting festival gig in the Virgin Islands. My principal instrument is the trumpet. We’ve been together for 20 years and it’s granted me the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and meet innovative and interesting people.
