Lunchtime Concert, October 1962

The Disneyland Band is soothing hungry (and weary) guests at the Plaza Gardens. You might not be able to read the sign, but it says that Vesey Walker is the leader...obviously that's not him. Maybe it's his son, Tommy.

What would they play for a lunchtime concert? Disney classics, like "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" and "Some Day My Prince Will Come"? Or maybe some big band standards like "In the Mood" and "Pennsylvania 6-5000"? Or maybe even arrangements of some of Annette Funicello's hit songs? I've heard that the members of the Disneyland Band were some of the finest musicians in the country, they could do it all!
