Sometimes it's not Carnegie Hall. Sometimes you don't have a state-of-the-art sound system. Sometimes you aren't swarmed by thousands of excited fans.
But every audience deserves the best you've got. The full show. That's what you get paid for. That's what professionalism demands.
Here's a guy who knows that. He's fronting the Fleet Forces Band in the Philippines during the 2007 Pacific Partnership humanitarian cruise. He's not saving his best for a TV show or concert hall. He's giving his all.
This is Navy music at its best.
Update -- In an earlier version, I misidentified this band. Thanks to Bob Marquart for passing on corrections.
