    Hey, Jim - I knew I recognized the 'flute' song! It's the 'Soul Bossa Nova' that was used as the Austin Powers theme song. Gotta love youtube! Pass it along to Susan for me?

    Is there any way to eliminate the over-amplification. A big band like this creates enough sound. In a venue this size there is no need to mic everything, amp it up, and pump it through cheap speakers. Loud and distorted may be the thing for some events but not this.
