Famous quotes containing the word band:

    The band waked me with a serenade. How they improve! A fine band and what a life in a regiment! Their music is better than food and clothing to give spirit to the men.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    There was a young lady called Gloria
    Who was had by Sir Gerald Du Maurier
    And then by six men
    And Sir Gerald again
    And the band of the Waldorf-Astoria.

    And the heavy night hung dark
    The hills and waters o’er,
    When a band of exiles moored their bark
    On the wild New England shore.
