Can’t Have the Fourth of July Without a Sousa March by The Elephant's Child

“The President’s Own” United States Marine Band recorded John Philip Sousa’s march “Semper Fidelis” on March, 3, 2009, in the John Philip Sousa Band Hall at Marine Barracks Annex in Washington, D.C. This video was recorded for the National Museum of the Marine Corps gallery titled “A Global Expeditionary Force 1866-1916,” where visitors will find an interactive Marine Band exhibit.

I’m a big John Phillip Sousa fan, but Mr. Sousa never dreamed of this performance by Guy Van Dueser. I’m all for brass bands and especially tubas, but I love this one too.

Jona Lewie— Can’t Stop the Cavalry

I’m a sucker for tuba bands. A Christmas Favorite, there are many versions, especially the Cory Band version which has no video.
