Instruments

Michel Hébert and Claude Archambault both play on Yamaha instruments.   Guylaine Jetté plays on a Jupiter trumpet.   Denis Bellemare prefers playing on a Conn 8D French horn.   Denis Desnoyers plays on an Jupiter 582L tuba, a Bach Stradivarius 36B trombone and a vintage Boosey & Hawkes Imperial euphonium (some people just can't make up their mind...).


Partners

We associated ourselves with the Musée du Haut-Richelieu for their fundraisers in exchange for a rehearsal place (many thanks to Mr Jacques Pichette who also does a great job at booking us) ; with la Course des Canards for the Fondation Santé, we gave concerts with the violin ensemble "Les Goûts Réunis", with the Choeur Amalgamme , with the Choeur du Richelieu and the Choeur Do-Ré-Mi, the Théâtre des Grands-Prés, we did summer concerts in Marchand Park in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, at "Les Mardis d'Édouard" in Marieville, the L'Acadie Church, the St-Athanase church, the Cathedral of St-Jean and the St-Noël-Chabanel church. We played prom night for the École Secondaire Beaulieu, the Polyvalente C.A. Racicot of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Verdun's Polyvalente Mgr Richard.

We also played twice for the Quebec Cerebral Palsy Association fundraising concert in 2003 and 2005, we did a Café-Concert in Saint-Luc in 2001, multitudes of weddings ceremonies and celebrations and the list goes on... We just can't say no. We also appeared twice for the Salon de la Culture, a yearly event that helps showcasing what we can do.

We also performed at the Fort Lennox Historic Site of Canada in St-Paul-de-L'Ile-aux-Noix neighboring the US border on the Richelieu River for their Beaux Dimanches concert serie in summer 2002.

We have to mention that we get our instruments fixed at L'Atelier du Musicien, who also sponsored our music stands, and at Twigg Musique.

We also want to mention our idol groups such as Canadian Brass, Empire Brass among many more.


There is also Web sites from many of our friends:

Our good friend composer and arranger Louis Babin;
Louis-Noël Fontaine and his saxophone quartet Tétrade;
Robert Len and his World Music.
