The Virginia Grand Military Band is a 70 piece ensemble primarily formed of Washington D.C. area professional musicians retired from the Washington military bands. The band is directed by Loras Schissel, a former Iowan. This is an outstanding band and the CD is one of the very best recordings of Karl King's music. Many of the marches are the more difficult and less frequently played, and are therefore seldom recorded compositions.
The King Band has purchased a substantial number of these CDs and has them available for $15 plus $3 shipping and handling per order, regardless of the number ordered. Address orders to: Karl King Band, Room 146, 424 Central Avenue, Fort Dodge, IA 50501.
