Ohio Military Band
Ohio Military Band
"Down the Street", (1931), by Victor J. Grabel, (1886-1965). Another GIANT of the band world! Born in Texas, Grabel studied at the Dana Musical Institute in Warren, Ohio. He then enlisted in the U.S. Army and later became leader of the 3rd Regiment Band. During WWI, he served under Sousa at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station. Grabel led several industrial bands in the Chicago area after WWI including the renowned Chicago Concert Band. He was one of the founders of the American Bandmasters Association and editor of the band and orchestra department of "Etude" magazine. Sousa enthusiasts may recall that Grabel acquired most of the original Sousa Band music library, (now in the Marine Band library).
