    Jari,
    You set the standard to aspire to and uphold as a Taps Bugler. Thank you for your expertise and shining example of how a bugler should perform and carry him or herself while executing the duties of a ceremonial bugler.

    Respectfully,

    I am so grateful for the flawless trumpet rendering of Taps at my beloved husband’s service on Friday January 20th in Memphis. Unfortunately, this superb musician had gone before I was able to thank him. If there is any possible way to convey my personal thanks to him, I would appreciate your assistance.

    Three days later, on January 23, I attended the service for a friend at which Taps “came from a can”…so disappointing.

    Tapsbugler is to be commended for the wonderful service provided for our veterans and their families.

    With gratitude,
    Mrs. Bill Binkley (Judith)

    This is probably the best site on the internet concerning Taps, as well as other bugle information. Thank you for your service, your patriotism, and creating this site. The only improvements, in my humble opinion, would be more videos or illustrations that demonstrate the proper manual of arms for the performing Taps both on the bugle and o trumpet.

    Hello Jari,
    I played with the 8th GA Regiment band for over 10 years. We performed with you in Charlston, SC a few years ago. It was during the 150th celebration of Taps. I really enjoyed meeting you and playing with you. Last year my cousin died and I asked the Marine detail if I could play Taps for them live, as they were using the canned bugle. I was refused stating policy. I cringed as I listened to the recording and the tinny sound. I am a member of Bugles Across America and I was a bit put out with the incident. Can that dilemma be rectofied?
