Beyonce's trumpet player longs for her Bucks County bed

Crystal Torres is excited to sleep in her own bed Friday night for the first time in months. The North Philly raised musician is the touring trumpet player for Beyonce, part of her all-female band of 10 musicians and three singers, who will play the Wachovia Center Friday. Torres, 26, is a graduate of Truman High in Bucks County where she lives when she’s not on the road. In her limited down time, Torres is recording and editing her first solo album on which she’ll sing and play trumpet. She says the band and Beyonce have become like a family and that people don’t understand “The extreme dedication and relentless hard work. B works really hard,” Torres says of the superstar.
