Rockin' @ the Summit Place

We had them dancing in the aisles last night; this band was hot! We had timpanis and congas, Ted on the tuba and Dave on the piccolo, amazing as always, a full-throttle wave of full-on horns and reeds, the City Band ripped it up out at the Summit Place atrium and to prove it, here's the standard of all standards, by John Philip Sousa, gone out as our heart-felt dedication that night to our own 60-years-of-service bandsman Clifford Iles who came out with his son to hear us play.

Cliff joined the band at the age of 9; that was a few years ago, in fact, it was Cliff's dad, Will Iles, who led the first Owen Sound City Band back in 1925, and we're still here, still all-ages, still all-volunteer, and still rockin' the house.
