Independent Silver Band performs as finale to Chatfield’s summer concert series


Fri, Jul 26th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Arts & Culture

The Independent Silver Band, from Mt. Vernon, Ill., will be making a stop in Chatfield, Minn. to perform on Thursday, August 1 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be at the Chatfield City Park band shell. The band is enroute to Northfield, Minn. to perform at the Vintage Band Festival during the weekend. In case of rain, the concert will be held in the Chatfield Elementary School lunchroom.

The Independent Silver Band was formed by William Reynolds, as a re-creation of the 19th Century Mt. Vernon Independent Silver Band. The original band, with 10 local men who attended the same church, was active from 1884 to 1889.

In July of 2004, the band came to life once again under the direction of William Reynolds, of Mt. Vernon, a music educator and longtime circus operator and musician. Reynolds brought together interested brass players and percussionists from Mt. Vernon and surrounding cities in southern Illinois, all of whom shared his vision of giving the audiences an opportunity to hear authentic American music of the 19th and 20th centuries. The musicians play pre-1920 era instruments and frequently dress in pre-1920 costumes or Civil War era uniforms. They play all styles of music from many time periods as the situation dictates.

The band performs throughout Illinois and surrounding states for many historical events including the Abraham Lincoln Museum, Civil War Reenactments, Box Socials, military balls, and concert performances in Mt. Vernon. For more information, visit their website at www. Independentsilverband.webs.com.

Old Tyme Café will be serving food from 6-7:30p.m. and the Root River Rabbits will serve refreshments during the concert. Bring your lawn chairs, friends, and family as we welcome the Independent Silver Band to Chatfield.
