Veteran’s Day USO Show: Featuring Fulda Area Big Band, “Bob Hope” “Marilyn Monroe” & More! Saturday, November 11 – 3:00 p.m. The Fulda Area Big Band has been playing music since 2005. The original membership consisted of musicians from the Fulda area, including alumni and then-current students of the Fulda High School Band. Over the years, the band has provided music for dancing and entertainment at weddings, anniversaries, receptions, retirement parties, town festivals, many types of fundraisers, adult proms, and other occasions. Currently, the membership of the band varies depending on the availability of performers and the size of band needed. Their repertoire is primarily dance music of the 1930’s and 40’s, with a few current and popular selections added for variety and fun!
Bob Hope’s life in comedy comes to life once again with Bill Johnson’s look-a-like and sound-a-like tribute to the legendary comedian. Bill Johnson has performed his tribute to the late, great Bob Hope across the U.S, and the South Pacific. Bill has performed his tribute regularly at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. When the Museum premiered the film “Beyond All Boundaries” in their Victory Theater, Bill was honored to introduce NBC-TV broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw, and perform a brief moment of comedy with the film’s Executive Producer, Academy Award winning actor Tom Hanks.
