Territorial Brass

Though this doesn't represent quite as early a period as some of the other ensembles I've blogged about, it still merits mentioning.  

This band, based in Arizona, captures a unique time period: music of the American town band from 1835 through to Arizona's statehood.  Like other reenactment-type bands, the members dress in costume.  Their program seems to contain some element of "show," as there is narration and sing-along to engage the audience.

More can be found at their website, here.
