Series: Town Bands

Carnivals, Fairs, & Gatherings

Finally, music was seen as an important complement to many other kinds of events. Consequently, the town band played a supporting role by providing music at events for which the band was not the main attraction. These might include commencement exercises, temperance meetings, baseball games, carnivals, fairs, circuses, and traveling medicine shows.
