I enjoy playing with ensembles or solo, and my experience and musical passion will help make your event a success. Always professional, I will strive to play precisely what you request, and will usually toss in some suggestions as well. My experience with large and small ensembles continues to increase my expertise, confidence, and knowledge of various genres, pieces, and composers. I particularly enjoy Classical, Dixieland, Big Band Swing, and Broadway tunes.

Past gigs range from concerts, weddings, holidays, and other religious services to background music for malls and birthday parties, special openings, and arts festivals. Venues range from the Montreux Jazz Festival's outdoor stage to New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Library of Congress, and Arlington National Cemetery to dozens of Maryland, D.C., Virginia, and Delaware stages, churches, and orchestra pits.

I am detail oriented and enjoy learning as much as I can about your event right away, if possible. Beyond the music style and event duration, I always appreciate knowing about such specifics as: Dress code, travel and/or parking options, special access to the venue, warm-up space, and those all-important cues (either aural and visual) for when to start and stop playing, if necessary.

Your event certainly deserves the best live music you can afford. I can help brighten that spark!

Len is a true professional and a wonderful person. He actually played with me on the organ. He had prepared well, was punctual and was very accomodating to the need of the hour. May God bless his performances and I recommend him highly. Thanks, Arun Samuel

Len did a great job on short notice with music he was not familiar with. Our wedding was wonderful because of Len.

I was very, very disappointed with this musician. First he came to the rehearsal and forgot his trumpet! Really? Perhaps this was so that I would not hear him play; because if I had I would have fired him then. It was a very formal wedding. I expected him to be in a dark suit. He was dressed very casually. O.K. I could overlook that if his musicianship had been exemplary. Unfortunately, it was not. His playing was not bright and joyful. It never rose above the organ. It sounded like he was afraid to play. I have attended other weddings were everyone raved about the music. No one even mentioned the trumpet to me. He was eminately forgetable. You get what you pay for

Len Morse’s Response:

1) I purposefully did not bring my trumpet because I thought it was going to be a rehearsal of ceremony steps for the bridal party, not a rehearsal the actual music. Obviously my fault on that one. 2) I was wearing a dark suit - not black, but dark. I'm not sure how a dark grey suit and tie equals "very casual." 3) The church had a beautiful echo and I thought the trumpet sound carried quite well. My sincerest apologies to the client for not playing as loudly as she had anticipated.
