Vesey Walker & The Disneyland Band, March 1958

Here is a great pair of vintage photos of the Disneyland Band!

Vesey Walker conducts the band, which has stopped near the Red Wagon Inn to  entertain the bystanders. For some reason those sharp-looking blue band uniforms weren't used for very long (they usually are seen wearing red or white), but I really ilke them. 

And there they go, marching toward Main Street Station; maybe they were about to gather around the flag pole to play some patriotic classics (as opposed to the disco they usually played).

Great set today. I don't remember seeing images of them in the dark blue uniforms. It sort of reminds me of a military band. Perhaps they performed some American military march classics back in those days.

K. Martinez, I figure that they would have at least performed classic marches by John Phillip Sousa... what could be more American?
