J.W. Pepper Sousaphone Featured in Scholarly Text on the Sousa Band


Paoli, PA, March 02, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The famous J.W. Pepper sousaphone, considered one of, if not the earliest sousaphone in existence is featured in a scholarly text by Paul Edmund Bierly entitled "The Incredible Band of John Philip Sousa." Published in 2006 by University of Illinois Press, the text details the endeavors, staff, tours, and legacy of one of the most renowned bands in American music history. Included in the work is an extensive appendix listing the band's performance schedule, a staff roster, typical band programs, a play list of songs and a lengthy discography. This is an excellent resource for Sousa aficionado's and history buffs alike.
