Travels of the Past
As you should be aware the Longhorn Alumni Band is going to London this New Years, but in years past the Longhorn Band has traveled and preformed at many other location; Presidential Inaugurations, The Super Bowl, Rosebowl Parade and bowl game.
For one of the Alumni Band showcases at the Music Building I’m planning on covering this topic. I’m looking for any photos, stories and information on past trips. If you could let me (Jerry Hayes) know about these I’ll be working on the case. I’m able to scan any hard copy you might have and I’ll be using a wide-format printer to reproduce in the case so you’ll get your originals back. But if you are able to send me high-res scans that would be great too.
I’ve heard stories that the old “circle drills” were developed because the band did a show in a bull ring. This might just be folklore but if true there’s a story. I also know of many tales of KKY guys driving Big Bertha to away bowl games. I’m sure there’s a story in there too.
Any help would be great. Send electronic files to Jerry@ChampPrint.com or email me with any information.Thanks,
