When the people of Montana and Wyoming gather at the Fair Grounds Auditorium (in Billings) on September 22 for the afternoon and evening performances of John Philip Sousa and his famous band, they will not be dissappointed. There is only one Sousa, and he will be there, rain or shine. This is the thirty-fifth season of Sousa and his band. Although the March King’s fame has been such that he might have sent out other musical organizations trained and presented by him, the only Sousa’s Band has been the one with which Sousa himself has appeared. And never but once in his third-of-a-century on the roads of America has Sousa been compelled to dissappoint his audiences. That was five years ago when a fall from a horse made it necessary for him to cancel his engagements for two weeks.
