Nate and Erin Mayland have been making a living playing on Broadway in pit orchestras for the past decade. Nate plays jazz and orchestral trombone having toured with the Four Tops, the Temptations, the Platters, and Frankie Valli, as well as performing for over 10 Broadway shows including Beetlejuice. Erin played violin in many Broadway shows and for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show with the Rockettes, until she auditioned for this unknown, off-Broadway show called Hamilton, which became her full time job for the past six years. The two of them have an interesting connection to our Suncoast and performed a masterclass for the music students at the State College of Florida called "The Back Story to Backstage: What Gets You in the Room Where It Happens," stressing the importance of interpersonal skills in the music business industry (plus some "backstage Hamilton" tidbits!). Their new venture, "Maple and Brass" have helped them reach thousands of young musicians with inspiring stories of the grit and glamour of their musical lives. Hear Nate and Erin's tale to Broadway and beyond and how they have reimagined their careers since their industry came to a screeching halt in March of 2020.Come along and join the club!Support the show (https://scf-foundation.org/suncoastcultureclub/)
