Over 100 members, former members, and friends of BonesWest gathered in Anaheim, California, in September 2000 to celebrate the choir's 20th anniversary.
Long-time friend of BonesWest, Lloyd Ulyate, served as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. George Roberts, the choir's founder, was present and received a gift from the choir in honor of his continuing devotion to the group.
Among the events:
Harry Betts led an ensemble in his seven-part spoof, "George's Greatest Hit," a whimsical version of "Making Whoopee."
Charles LaRue, on behalf of the choir, presented a gift to Local 7, AFM, represented by its president, Frank Amoss. The local Musician's Association has been a long-time patron of the choir.
Greetings from John Drew, ITA president, were read, as were those from Irv Wagner, ITA past president, Larry Linkin, NAMM CEO, and others.
The first-ever "Spit Happens" award went to Larry Robinow, judged to be the loudest in emptying his horn during rehearsals.
