have gotten together & rehearsed a couple of arrangements that they could do
together.  This of course, makes for a *really big band sound."

Something like this happened a few years ago when the Wooden Nickel Jass
Band and Fireworks! shared the bill on a JazzDagen cruise. The combined band
was called "Firewood," and certainly kindled a blazing performance. Alas,
both bands are now reduced to ashes.
