The Marne Band

These videos feature me playing bass drum as a member of the U.S. Army‘s 3rd Infantry Division Band.

We were sent on a mission to Hungary by President George Bush.  It was June 1989, half a year before the Malta Summit, where Bush declared the end of the Cold War.

Compare reactions at the end of respective performances from the Soviet marching band and America’s Marne Band by the communist bloc audience.
