During the month of August, the Friday night musical program for the El Dorado Springs Municipal Band is based on band member’s favorite songs. One of our band members came up with the idea to play music according to the decade it was written, so that is what we are going to do for our program Saturday and Sunday. Saturday’s program will be songs from the 1880’s and Sunday’s songs will be from the 1890’s. This is the first time we have ever looked at our songs this way, and it should be interesting. There remains space in the program for crowd favorites, so if there is a song you want to hear, talk to band manager Teri Biddlecome. If we have the music, we will try to fit it in. If we need to pull it from our files, we will try to play it the following week. We are saying farewell to more and more college students every weekend, so our band is getting smaller each week. Friday and Saturday concerts are from 8-9 p.m. and Sunday afternoon concerts are from 2-3 p.m.
