They're playing, on a jet plane
Bruce Campbell's 727 Boeing airliner, which serves as his home, has long been an attraction in the woods near Laurel, outside Hillsboro in Washington County.
For an ensemble, recently, it served as a concert venue.
The Portlandia Brass Ensemble put on a concert on a wing of the Boeing airliner, titled "A Blast of Fresh Air" and performed Sept. 5, and a Pamplin Media Group photographer, Diego G. Diaz, documented it with photos.
The band wrote in its Groupmuse invitation posting: "The acoustics are wonderful. The place is magical. Our host is gracious. And, of course the music is just what the doctor ordered."
