Admiral Farragut entered the favy at the age of nine. In 1916 the city of Algona voted in a band fund lax and since that time has sponsored an Algona Municipal band, but the boys were blowing thei;- horns many years before that. According to Lawrence Gillespk>, who played a number of year.-! in the band, it would be safe to say that Algerians have been li.s'lening to a town-peoplid band /or belter than fifty yarn's. A list of the musicians that have played in an Algona band reads like a city "who's who", down through the years, and most are names that still exist in fact or memory in the conversations and activities of today. Band business was big business in the days of the 20's anci Aigona was known as having one of the greatest bands in the state. Families used to gather together on the court house lawn for musical enjoyment from Sousa marches to the ever popular walt/es. featuring perhaps the cornet of Lou Guderian, The band received invitations to play in ami around the county, and playcci concerts in such places as Greenwood Park in Des Moines, and on every Fourth of July at Hand's Park. And so the .Algona Municipal band kept playing through the many years, under such directors as Prof. Fritz Gran/ow, Gecht, Theo, Oren Spaldin«. etc., down to the present and Kusseii Glister. Guster took over the band in 1945. In 1!)47 concerts began taking place at Ihe Athletic Field, where they are still being presented on Thursday nights during t h e summer months. Besides Ihe regular concerts, the band plays for many local celebrations, and usually put-: in an appearance at tin- county fair. At presenl the band consists of f>7 members. Last Thursday, August 4. Ih; 1 band played numbers in tribute to the Ion;.; years of music played by Algona Municipjl bands. Beginning wi'h ,i selection written by Gus'.er for tin; Centennial, which he calls "Medley 1UUO-191U". the band played songs that Algona musicians from the past to present have played --- old stand-by marches, "Sleepy Lagoon", and .Jerome Kern's "Showboat." Aiul so we salute an organi/ation that lu.s been a par! of Algona hie, dinvn through the years, the Algona Municipal Band.
