Adventureland Band was a five member marching-style band that played around the park starting in 2000.
They were there at least through 2007, I think, based on archive.org mirrors of the old website. But it seems to repeat the same Sodas and Sounds shows for several years. Was this correct? Maybe the archive is of pages that were no longer visible, and other content was more current and I just cannot find it?
1999 website excerpt:
The Adventureland Band (New for 2000) will be a new show addition to Adventureland Park this season. They will be a strolling band consisting of five musicians, to appear in various places in the park. The show will be approximately 20 minutes in length and will be performed each hour between 11am and 7pm.
The Adventureland Band will be a turn of the century band complete with straw hats, striped shirts, suspenders, and maybe even a handlebar moustache or two thrown in!
It will be made of instruments such as drums, tuba, and three horns of various types. Songs in the bands repertoire run from the sheet music days of the 1890’s thru the roaring Twenties. "Alexander’s Ragtime Band", "The Charleston", "H-A-R-R-I-G-A-N", and other great old songs. Combine with these will be some spontaneous guest related humor and a wicked KAZOO medley. It will be just good old fashioned Fun!
