The Frontier Brigade Band Presents
Buffalo Bill’s Cowboy Band: A Play With Music

Imagine what it must have been like for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West to come to town. It is 1909 and Buffalo Bill’s Famous Cowboy Band is giving a concert for your community. Presenting the concert are Master of Ceremonies, Professor Charles Eldridge Griffin (Wild West Lecturer, Comedian, Contortionist, Sword Swallower, Writer, Yogi, and former Manager of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West), and Cowboy Band Manager, Dexter E. Fellows (Special Press Agent for the Wild West). Throughout the 70 minute presentation you will learn of the historic personalities and composers of the era while being treated to a variety of musical stylings that should excite, beguile, and intrigue you. Highlights of the production include a musical interpretation of the Attack on the Deadwood Mail Coach and a short presentation extolling the products of the Kickapoo Indian Medicine Company. The production utilizes the 20-plus member band, two actors, appropriate set pieces and dressings.
