This morning was another “not normal” morning for our worship environment. Yes, we used our normal two synchronized bands, click tracks and loops library, singers, and the like — but we added one different element that gave the style a spin. It was a simply Chicago-style horn section (Trumpet, Sax, Trombone). Chicago-style, meaning like the popular band Chicago back in the 70′s and 80′s. Who knew that Chicago would be “second only to the Beach Boys in terms of singles and albums, Chicago is one of the longest running and most successful U.S. pop/rock and roll groups.” 
Here is one email received today, immediately following the morning.

Great job with worship today! I’m an old brass player, and although I am usually not too fond of brass in worship, apparently it’s because no one has shown me how to do it right until now. You were perfectly balanced and really complemented the vocalists. I’m guessing you wrote the brass parts? It reminded me of why I loved the group Chicago back in high school.
Keep it up!
Here was my response…
Thanks for the encouragement (name withheld). I’ll certainly pass it on to the musicians.
I’m with you — I’m usually not a fan of how brass is incorporated into worship bands (from past experience), but some of my favorite groups from my younger years are Chicago, Tower of Power, and Earth, Wind, and Fire. However, if the brass parts are written in true “horn section” style — it can work.
Wish I could claim I wrote the brass arrangements, but they were all purchased from praisecharts.com. They were the horn parts taken straight from the full orchestrations, but they work as stand alone horn section parts.
The balancing act was kudos to the sound operator — they can make us sound worse than we really are, just like we are, or better than we really are. The sound board is the most important instrument in the entire house, in my opinion.
By the way, let me know if you ever want to break out your instrument — would love to have another like-minded brass player in our ranks.
Yes, it takes extra work to put together elements. A volunteer had to assemble the sheet music for the horn section. We edited down the music to fit the roadmap to the loops and click tracks. We had to pipe down the horn section with the synchronized band in the Lower Auditorium from the Main Auditorium. The horn section had to be available for the rehearsal and weekend. Extra mics and platforms had to be setup. The stage needed to be reconfigured. Certain songs had to be picked — and then cross your fingers that the arrangements work with Hillsong, Baloche, modern hymn arrangements, and Redman songs.
Are these extra elements really worth it in the end? As long as you can keep a balence (don’t burn out from it or overuse the elements as to diminish its value) — yes, it is worth it. It creates variety from week to week, uses the talents God has assembled, and provides an added challenge to both musicians and techs.
And here is the full setlist…
