The Oriental Band was started in 1919. It has been serving Kosair
Shrine proudly ever since.
There are 30 active and reserve bandsmen. We dress in colorful
Arabian theme costumes. We play horns, drums, tambourines,
triangles, a gong, and two unusual "pogos".
With the support of our Ladies, known as "The Harem", we perform our
own brand of "music" at public parades and special events. We
perform so that people will know of the Shriners' devotion and
dedication to help crippled children to walk.
The Oriental Band meets every Monday at 8 PM, with a business
meeting on the 1st Monday of the month.
