Mr. Jack Daniels' Original Silver Cornet Band


Sunday Night Jazz Showcase

Program #109 (February 21 at 8:00PM)

Mr. Jack Daniels' Original Silver Cornet Band is an affectionate re-creation of a small town band that existed in Lynchburg, Tennessee from 1892 until about 1914.

The “modern” version of this band was the creation of David Fulmer, who wrote the show and performed as the “Professor” for many years.

Since the band began touring in 1978, Mr. Jack Daniels' Original Silver Cornet Band has performed in concert halls throughout the United States and Canada and has delighted audiences at music festivals, music educator conferences, and for civic and private events with its joyful style and expert musicianship.

More than just a band concert, a performance by the Silver Cornet Band is a time traveling excursion to an era when life moved at a less hurried pace; when a warm summer evening was spent with a picnic supper in the park, the fellowship of friends and neighbors, and the sound of band music in the air.
