From a Blue Knights press release: Brad Green is the new brass caption head for the Blue Knights. Green will move from his current position as music ensemble and brass technician to fill the caption head spot. Andy Smart, who has served in the capacity of caption head for the past two seasons, has accepted a position with the cast of "Blast!" and will be touring with them throughout Asia during the summer. "It's no secret that the opportunities to perform professionally in the music world are few and far between," said Blue Knights director Mark Arnold. "Andy has done a great job for us over the past two years and we certainly wish him well in this endeavor. Luckily for us, one of his greater contributions was bringing to us the extremely qualified and committed staff we currently have. Brad Green, Joni Viertel, Freddy Hernandez and Brandon Epperson have all been with us for the past couple of years, and I know we will not skip a beat when it comes to the continued development of our horn line. "Brad Green certainly has the respect of our entire membership and staff and I look forward to working with him in the coming year," Arnold said.
