It's good to be back playing band music again.
The Greater Des Moines Community Band held its first practice of the new year on Monday night.
Once again, there are some challenging numbers included in the playlist.
Don't forget, there is no practice on Monday night, Feb. 1, the date of the Iowa Caucuses.
One last thing. What do you think about putting short bios and photos of band members on this blog? It's an idea I've thought about since last fall.
