Tammy McCormack Brice

Tammy soloed on "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" and Glen Newton's arrangement of "Second Hand Rose" with the Roseville Big Band on a concert in the Central Park band shell Thursday, July 30, 1998.

Tammy had previously soloed with the band on "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" at the Confederate Air Force dance, May 16, 1998. Despite a power outage that disabled the band's electric bass, guitar, and piano in the middle of the song, Tammy wasn't rattled, but since the power outage also disabled the vocal sound system, making it impossible for the audience to hear her, Glen finished the song on his trumpet.

Vistors to Shakopee's ValleyFair amusement park may have seen Tammy performing in song and dance groups at the park. They may have also seen other performing ensembles that Tammy hired during her years as entertainment coordinator for the park.

On September 20, 1998, the Roseville Big Band played for Tammy and Bob Brice's wedding reception, in hangar #3 at Fleming Field, where the Confederate Air Force dances are held. During the reception Tammy sang a song with the band, and Bob, who has also been featured on drum set in performing groups at ValleyFair, sat in with the band on "Sing, Sing, Sing."

Tammy served as entertainment coordinator for Camp Snoopy at the Mall of America, before she and Bob moved to Iowa.
