Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (October 14, 2017)

Getty Herschel Huffine was born in 1889 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and was working at an ax-handle factory when the town band was organized in 1907. When he first played in the band, he had to play a valve trombone, but eventually taught himself how to pay the tuba, slide trombone, trumpet, and string base. After 5 years in the town band, he apparently worked for a while in circus bands, but eventually settled in Binghampton, New York, where he was a member of the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company Band. When he died in 1947, the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company Band played our opening march at graveside. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with “Them Basses.”
