Music for Brass Quintet

When we began this company back in 1998, we started with 10 brass quintet arrangements. Little did I realize at that time the impact those 10 arrangements would have on churches around the United States and now the world. When we launched AnderKamp Music, we struck a chord with folks who had brass players in [...]

K-Love Cruise 2016, the Double Sea Horns and Danny Gokey

In my previous update I mentioned playing trumpet on the K-Love Cruise in the 'Double Sea Horns'. As a result of a conversation with one of our neighbors, Chad Mattson (Unspoken), we ended up playing with Unspoken on their brand new song 'Higher' for their concerts on the ship. That night after the concerts (2 [...]

K-Love Cruise 2016, the Double Sea Horns and Unspoken

I talked in a previous post about my experiences arranging music for the Duck Commander Cruise, RamCorps and Lee Greenwood. I 'officially' met a now dear friend, Mark Brannon, who is the CEO of Memphis Based travel company Premier. Mark is a great guy, and best of all...he's a trumpet player. (And a good one [...]

I had the opportunity January 16th to fly down to Panama City as the Panama City Pops Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Eddie Rackley, played my arrangement of Holy, Holy, Holy as the encore to their concert. The concert featured Grammy Award winning composer and artist Dick Tunney performing his Monkee's Concerto on the [...]

Holy, Holy, Holy One of our most majestic hymns, this powerful text and melody has been sung and played for ages proclaiming the true holiness and trinity of God. I wanted to create an arrangement that would attempt to honor both the majesty and the intimacy of God's holiness. There is a 'Concert Version' as [...]

Sitting In or “Post Graduate Studies”

VISUAL I've said this for years. When I am trying to learn something, I immediately go to YouTube to see if someone has made a video of how to do it (and someone usually has). I can try and read a manual, but if there aren't pretty pictures (diagrams), it's like pulling teeth to me. [...]

Sitting In – with Bruce Broughton

Back in high school (mid/late 80s), our assistant band director wrote an arrangement of Bruce Broughton's iconic score to 'Silverado' for the marching band. It was one of 'those' moments for me...a shaping moment. I loved the music and how it worked with the film. That was a pivotal moment for me in my love [...]

Christmas in Black and White created by Jeff Slaughter

I wrote a horn arrangement for one of Jeff Slaughter's songs from a VBS collection he did with Brentwood-Benson Publishing. The next Christmas, he had this idea for a children's Christmas musical based around a penguin polar pet park. My friend, Jonathan Crumpton, VP of Brentwood-Benson, called and said, "We're doing this new musical with [...]
