Saxxsymbol, I've never heard of Sebring. Is that near Orlando? I've only been as far up as Jupiter.
FBallatore, most S. Floridians are from the north anyways and spend part-time here. I'm a former NYer who has to fly back and forth throughout the year for fam obligations. So you're Floridian to me!
Martin, ahhh....a neighbor! Are you professional or amateur? Are you in any community bands? What do you do for a living?
Me...I'm 26 y.o. I started playing alto on and off since 2001 so I'm not where I should be. I've got down all the basics and I'm starting to learn a bit about jazz and to understand music theory, which is all greek to me. I'm starting to get a bit more serious about it, although I'm sure it will stay a hobby.
sebring is straight up us hwy 27 in the middle of the state. we are about 1 hour south of orlando. the 12 hours of sebring road race is held every year here in march. funny but it is the most one of the most famous races in the world but most americans have never heard of it. it is currently in the American Le Mans series and is the same circuit as the 24 hours at daytona.
AAh! The jazz wasteland of South Florida. There are some good players, but most of the gigs are commercial stuff and Latin bands. I always remember seeing that billboard on 95 northbound crossing into Broward county that read; Will the last American that leaves Miami please bring the flag with them?
