      Union Music Goes Hollywood!

      Well, maybe not Hollywood, but how about the Discovery Channel? That's right, we were recently featured in an episode of MythBusters. The myth is about a trombonist who allegedly put fireworks in his mute and lit them during the 1812 Overture. Supposedly, the mute went flying out of the horn and hit the conductor in the chest, knocking him into the audience. At the same time, the backfire went through the trombone and badly burned the player's lips.

      Fact or fiction? Using trombones and mutes they got from Union Music, MythBusters busted this myth. Oh, well...
