Did your ancestor serve in any of these bands? Do you have any memorabilia you'd be willing to copy or photograph for us to share "to the world"on our website? Did your ancestor know who wrote "4th Cav Band" on the wall in the spectacular cave near Ft. Huachuca? All donated items become the property of the Old Arizona Brass Band & sources will be duly referenced unless anonymity is requested.

In particular, please help us compile a list of the soldier-musicians who served at old Fort Lowell. Thank you.
