Marching band

“Seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind
There were more than a thousand reeds
Springing up like weeds
There were horns of ev’ry shape and kind.”
Seventy-Six Trombones – Meredith Wilson

The Lincoln High School marching band performed daily at the San Joaquin County Fair. Dressed in casual attire of T-shirts (with the band name printed on them) and jeans, the marched throughout the fairgrounds playing snappy tunes like the Sam and Dave song “Soul Man.”

A smaller contingent than their normal band, they still had trumpets, trombones and drums. And of course there were saxophones, flutes and clarinets.

Also in the band was an electric piano and bass guitar and the poor guys who had to schlepp them around the fair along with a wagon carrying a generator.
