The Sousa Band
With its popular reputation and good wages, the Sousa Band was
able to recruit some of the best musicians around.
For 39 years, this large group toured the country by train. A
Sousa Band tour would last for many months, often with several
performances each day and only a few days off for travel between
cities. The band traveled to every corner of the United States and
did several European tours and one world tour. Together they
traveled more than 1 million miles, and they still managed to find
the time for other fun. The band had its own baseball team, and
Sousa was the pitcher. They played against local baseball teams and
those of rival bands. Sousa even wrote a march song about baseball
called "The National Game."
