Volume 14 – Frock Coats and Hoopskirts – Music for a Military Ball


In stock

SKU: Vol14 Category:


A military ball was the finest duty a bandsman could have.  Not only to show off a good band book repertoire, or playing ability, but to see some of the finer side of life left behind.  Pretty ball gowns, good food, perhaps an opportunity to dance with a lovely lady made the soldier’s life a little more enjoyable and memorable.  Included here are some of the finest dance tunes of every variety –  about 75 minutes worth of two-steps, polkas, schottisches, reels, jigs, and of course waltzes.  As a part of the performance, we include a few vocals for you to relax and catch your breath.  Enjoy!!
