The symphony orchestra was performing Beethoven's Ninth.

In the piece, there's a long passage, about 20 minutes, during which the bass violinists have nothing to do.

Rather than sit around that whole time looking stupid, some bassists decided to sneak offstage and go to the tavern next door for a quick one.

After slamming several beers in quick succession, one of them looked at his watch and said, "Hey! We need to get back!"

"No need to panic," said a fellow bassist. "I thought we might need some extra time, so I tied the last few pages of the conductor's score together with string. It'll take him a few minutes to get it untangled."

A few moments later they staggered back to the concert hall and took their places in the orchestra.

About this time, a member of the audience noticed the conductor seemed a bit edgy and said as much to her companion.

"Well, of course," said her companion. "Don't you see? It's the bottom of the Ninth, the score is tied, and the bassists are loaded."

This is a true story.

Jerry drinks tonic water because he requires a small dose of quinine daily to combat a medical problem. However, he's also trying to lose weight so he drinks diet tonic water which contains no sugar. Unfortunately, diet tonic water is a little hard to find around here. One day when we were having a particularly hard time finding it, Bev said, "Why do you have to have diet tonic water? Couldn't you just drink chromatic water?"

This is a true story about my brother. I have to reveal the Awful Family Secret Shame to tell it, but I don't care. After all, it's his Secret Shame, not mine. Anyway, here it is: my brother plays trombone.

Anyway, after he got back from 'Nam he needed money so he took a job with the National Guard Band. They were looking for a trombone tooter and he qualified.

So they're playing this gig in Clinton, Illinois one Fourth of July, and my brother and the drummer -- a black guy and another Vietnam vet -- are sitting in the back next to each other. Whatever the band was playing didn't require much boning or drumming, so they were, well, they were screwing around something awful but having a whole lot of fun at it.

Then Abraham Lincoln walked in. That is, a guy who was playing Lincoln (and not very well) walked among the band, in character, shaking hands and trying to act like Abe.

When he got to my brother and his friend, he shook their hands and made a fatal error. Abe said, rather condescendingly, "I do like to see white soldiers and black soldiers playing music together, I really do." And he started to walk way.

Brother T, more than a little annoyed and knowing that the drummer was too, called out, "Mr. Lincoln! Mr. Lincoln! I have a question, Mr. Lincoln!"

The actor turned around and quietly asked, "And what is that, my son?"

Brother T: "Mr. Lincoln, do you think you could re-think this Emancipation thing?"

At which point the not-very-good actor was stricken dumb, and the trombonist and the drummer literally fell into each others arms shaking with laughter. "Only you," choked out the drummer, "only you!"

My favourite musicians joke was told a few years ago by the late Benny Green on the Parkinson show. Perhaps one or two people missed it.

Four musicians are contracted to play at a hunt ball. Bass, piano, drums and sax. The drummer and bass turn up but the sax and piano get a better offer, and don't bother.

the hapless rhythm section try to explain the situation to the lady organiser. They say they can't do the gig. She says, look here you common musician type people - you are supposed to be professional musicians, get up there and play something for my group of very nice people, or I'll set the dogs on you.....

So they get up and start playing - just bass and drums. Anyway it seems to be going okay, people are dancing, somebody buys them a drink.....the evenings looking up.

After about ten minutes the bass player says, I'll go to the back of the room and check the sound. The drummer says okay, see ya! carries on drumming.

A very upper class lady glides by dancing her little heart out, she calls - i say can you play Just One of Those Things...

The drummer scowls back, what the .... do you think I'm playing?

A tourist visiting Dublin stumbles upon a taxidermists shop, intriged he steps inside. after looking around for a bit he spots a stuffed rat for €10. as it was cheap enough he decided it would make an unusual souvieneir so he purchased it.

Walking down the street he glanced over his shoulder and noticed to his amusement 2 rats running along behind him. He continued.

About 10 mins later he again glanced over his shoulder to see several hundred rats running behind him. He continued.

By the time he reached the river Liffey, he again had a glance, only to find to his horror, that nearly every rat in the country was behind him. Realising it must be to do with his purchase, he took it out of the bag and flung it into the river, after which thousands of rats dived in after it and drowned instantly.

The tourist turned on his heels and marched straight back to the taxidermist, upon entering the shop, the taxidermist said, "Hello, you again. Is there a problem?"

"No" replied the tourist. " I was just wondering, you don't by any chance have any stuffed Banjo players do you"

(groan, Sorry)

PhD student at UEA is doing research into the theory that people's pets take on their behavioural characteristics. Eventually the sample comes down to three dogs, one belonging to a lawyer, one to a chartered surveyor and the third to a professional musician...

A bare room has bonio dog biscuits scattered over the floor at random, and the lawyer's dog is put in; it gathers up the bonios, divides them into two roughly equal piles and sits down exactly between them.
The surveyor's dog is put in, examines the two heaps from all sides and sits down next to the larger of the heaps...
Then the muso's dog is put in - eats the bonios, screws the other two dogs and says, "How much are we getting paid for this gig then...?"

Three men died and appeared before St. Peter to see whether they could get into heaven. St. Peter asked the first one, "What did you do for a living?" The man said, "I was a doctor and I made a lot of money." St. Peter said, "Go to hell." St. Peter asked the second man the same question, and the man said, "I was a lawyer and I made a lot of money." St. Peter said, "Go to hell." Then it was the third man's turn. He said, "I didn't make much money but I did make people happy." St. Peter said, "What instrument did you play?"

............................

Someone who just died and went to heaven was being shown around by an angel. He saw a man dressed in a tuxedo, standing on a podium with a music score in front of him, waving a white stick. The newcomer asked the obvious question and the angel said, "No that's God. He just thinks he's von Karajan."

.............................

Some definitions:

detache: an indication that the trombones should play with their slides removed

vibrato: used by singers to disguise the fact that they are on the wrong pitch

coloratura soprano: a singer who has great trouble finding the proper note but has a wild time hunting for it

chromatic scale: an instrument for weighing in half pounds

beat: what musicians do to each other with their instruments. The down beat is performed on the top of the head, and the up beat is struck under the chin.

repeat: what you do until they expel you

perfect pitch: the smooth coating on a freshly paved road

whole note: what's due after failing to pay the mortgage for a year

time signature: what you need from your boss if you forget to clock in

major scale: what you say after chasing wild game up a mountain. "Damn! That was a major scale."

Man comes into a bar with an octopus under his arm He says to the barman," I'll bet you my $100 drinks tab he can play any musical instrument you like".
Barman says:" There's a piano over there, go ahead."
Guy puts the octopus on the stool, octopus flips up the lid, plays a few scales and then slips into an etude. Guy says: "Pay up". Barkeep says, "Wait a minute" and brings out a guitar from under the counter. Guy gives it to the octopus. Octopus tightens up the E-string, closes his eyes and plays a sweet fandango. "Pay up" says the guy. "Wait up" says the bartender and rummages in the lost and found box and comes up with a clarinet, hands it to the octopus. Octopus tightens the reed, has a go, not perfect but plays a couple of scales. Barkeep finally comes up with a set of bagpipes. Guy lays the octopus on the bar next to the bagpipes. Octopus looks them over, picks each pipe up in turn and lets it drop, squints at the bag. Guy gets nervous, says, "What's the matter, can't you play it?" Octopus says, "Play it? If I can figure out how to get its pyjamas off I'm gonna fuck it."

That reminds me, when my daughter was young, she was going on about Def Leppard, whose records she'd been playing at full boost in her room, fo the discomfiture of the entire household.

I said: "Yeah, he must be deaf, to make that noise!"

She: "Daa-aad, that's spelled D-E-F!"

Me: "Oh, he can't spell, either?"

That was kind of like my father's response when he asked who is that? It was Rush doing Tom Sawyer.
His response was:
"Rush to the toilet and throw up!"

A friend of mine who plays the five string rather well once commented that "Ninty-nine percent of banjo players give the rest of us a bad name."
