How about a shout out to our two youngest ‘horn players’ you might have caught them on our live feed from the Brigade Serenade! They went the whole way with with the band and we’re sure proud of ‘em. #SPSB18 #SPSBFamily

As the clock winds down on '17 we thought we'd share the most requested song from our FB friends the last several days! Enjoy this favorite we did for the camera folks at NBC10. If you're coming out to take in the parade live please know we are ready and can't wait to see you, but you need to be prepared and smart about the weather. From our SPSB family's to yours, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We hope you have as 'Big' of a time listening to this one as we do playing it... One of our 2018 street tunes.
'I love you, yes I do, I love you...' Here's our take on this 1936 tune written by Billy Mayhew and later popularized by Fats Waller - always a dance band and jam session favorite!
'Deep within my heart lies a melody. A song of old San Antone...' Enjoy our version of this Bob Wills classic
How about we do a little smiling to warm things up today!
