Centennial Kick Off by Spotted The Lubbock Centennial Kick Off Celebration

 

 



The Lubbock Band appeared at the July 4, 1907 celebrations. By 1922, Lubbock band supporters were entertained with spring and summer exhibitions.

Original Lubbock Band working hard to improve

1922 The original bandmen of Lubbock are going forward with their work and have been given a great deal of encouragement by local people. About twenty of them meet each week to practice, and according to one who was fortunate enough to attend one of the meetings, those fellows are able to make fine music, and are gaining in accuracy all the same. Through the courtesies of the management of the Lubbock Business College, they have been given the study room of that institution to practice in each week, where each Tuesday night they assemble, and go through intensive training.

A good band in Lubbock is a town necessity and we are glad to see these old bandmen lining up again for spring and summer exhibitions.

We are sure they are appreciated by the business men, and should be, for band work has a little work attached to it the same as anything else and there is plenty of opportunities for it to become real labor, for instances, those who played at the Lubbock Fair last October certainly worked on the job, and the good they did for the entire town is hard to estimate.

Let's all do all we can to encourage those bandmen, and keep Lubbock the home of as noisy a bunch as was ever gotten together.

It is very well to be peaceful, but too much quiet at one time is not good for a young growing town in just the same way that inactivity is not good for the average growing boy.
