12-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, April 20, 1967 U.S. Navy Band Coming May 2 Music lovers in this area will be very happy to learn that the U.S. Navy Band, a smash hit here a couple of years ago during an appearance at the Garrigan High School auditorium, will again visit Algona for a pair of concerts May 2. The appearance, scheduled again at Garrigan for afternoon and evening performances, is being sponsored by the same organization, the Algona Rotary Club. During the afternoon program which is entirely different than the evening show, 10 lucky high school musicians from this area will appear with the noted musical organization - and practically the entire crowd at the performance will be band members and grade and high school students from this vicinity. Tickets are now on sale for the show at fl.50 for reserved seats and 51 general admission by members of the Rotary Club - and funds raised by the appearance (above and beyond the cost of bringing the band here) will be turned over to various charities here by the club. John Claude is chairman of the over-all committee on the project and Dick Thoreson is cochairman. Chet Schoby is serving as program chairman and other chairmen are Bud Anderson, reception; John Love, tickets; Dean Kinsman, auditorium and ushers; and Dr. Don Kingfield, publicity. Rotary president is Gordon Schmidt. Adjectives used to describe the Navy Band are endless. "The World's Finest" perhaps best describes its personnel. The band has always appealed to fans of all ages, with its ultra-modern "Swingphonette" section giving sparkling personality to light operas and the latest swing rhythms. For true music fans, the appearance here is a "must".
