Performances for May, 2012

We had three appearances during the month of May this year. Two were at rehab facilities, and the third was an easy-access performance in Harvey Park (Rockport) at 1:00 P.M. on May 19 (during the Chamber of Commerce Motif #1 Day festivities). The actual program is posted on our “Previous Concert Programs” page.

Rockport Legion Band Featured on “Brasscast”

Peter Ryan and Lucas Burns, hosts of the international band podcast “Brasscast”, have selected the Rockport Legion Band to be featured on their program of September 6, 2009.

The program will feature five tracks from the RLB’s CD “We Are The Rockport Legion Band” plus an interview that will give listeners an brief overview of the band. The musical examples are:

Duble: Galop Zip Boom

Sousa: Belle of Chicago March

Allen: General Mixup, U.S.A.

Lampe/Park: Watermelon Club Rag

Lowrey: Prince of Decorah Galop

We are, of course, thrilled to be recognized and featured on such a widely-heard program. Peter tells me that they have over 40,000 listeners worldwide! Not bad for a little band from the edge of the world.

“Brasscast” has, unfortunately, ceased to exist (like many Internet enterprises), so the program is now available by clicking on the “RLB on Brasscast” link to our media player (Jukebox Alive!) in the right hand column.
