A few weeks ago it was my pleasure to be the emcee at the Indianapolis TubaChristmas, held in the Artsgarden of the Circle Centre Mall in downtown Indianapolis. We had 60 euphonium and tuba players performing and over 500 euphonium and tuba fans in the audience.
For better or worse, here are some photos of Snor in action.
This was bittersweet for me since this was the first TubaChristmas without my dear mentor Harvey Phillips. I was part of the first TubaChristmas in Rockefeller Center in 1974 and have missed only two ever since.
Here is the BEST. PICTURE. EVER. of Snorlax.

Do you ever PLAY that thing, Jim, or do you just sit there, look goofy, and hold it???
Chicks dig the sousaphone!!
'Zat you, Santa Claus?
Sing Along with Snor!! (I think my hair is too tight)
At least the guy in the lower right got the joke...
Belated Merry TubaChristmas to all!!
