I just picked up a double LP from eBay. I am no where near a turntable, so it will probably be a month or two before I can listen to it. I will list the tracks, but there is no indication who plays what. If there are announcements on the LP, I will update this later. My GUESS is two massed band (A&B) and the Honor Band.

My first Youth Band Festival was 1971 at the Shrine. Can any of you oldtimers (I was seven when this took place) add anything?

AWESOME. Get that converted to disc and I'll buy a copy. I'm pretty sure my brother was in the Downey City Youth Band at that time.

OMG !! I just stumbled onto this site - having googled my old band name. (Let's see if someone can guess which one, based on my UserName.)

1963 was my first Youth Band Festival, at the Hollywood Bowl. Actually, in '63 I was in the "junior" band connected with that higher level group. The festivals started at the Shrine Auditorium the following year. I can't get to my band albums - too much clutter in the spare room - or I could possibly help with telling you which bands played on which sides. Also - doesn't that double album have small pictures of each band on the inside?

And - I don't recall the Long Beach Junior Concert Band at that '63 Hollywood Bowl concert. I don't even recall them at the '64 one at the Shrine. But I was a young teenager in those years, and can't remember everything after - OMG again - 47 years !!

I found your post while looking for my old band.
Sadly, I have no program from the event but I would love to hear the album.
Did you ever get it transferred to disk?
