New Gaynor Brunson news

Gaynor Brunson, of the nationally known Brunson Brothers group, performed earlier this week at Franklin Elementary School in Provo.

The jazz trumpeter visited the school’s sixth-grade classes and performed a few holiday songs from the new Brunson Brothers CD, “‘Tis the Season.” The CD also features a DVD as well.

The band features four members of the Brunson family — Gaynor, Arlan, Deron and Raland.

One of the standout tracks is the band’s version of “Little Drummer Boy,” which features Jay Osmond on vocals.

Brunson also spoke to the classes about the Community Action Utah Food Banks and gave a little lecture about the positive effects that good music can have on people’s lives.

Anyway, it’s always nice to hear about musicians giving back to their community.

Oh, for those who want to purchase “‘Tis the Season,” the CD can be found at Summerhays Music stores in Orem and Salt Lake City. It can also be purchased at Community Action locations. Proceeds will be used to help the food bank organization.
