About The Band Plays On
Celebrating the soul of America’s heartland, The Band Plays On is Rick Niece’s heartfelt tribute to friendship, community, and, most importantly, his father, Lewis Niece. When DeGraff, Ohio’s beloved band teacher is invited to direct an encore performance, “Lewie’s Alumni Band” gathers to celebrate with gusto. As the band practices for its final parade, Rick, his baritone in tow, reflects on treasured memories, relationships, and the legacy of a small town with indomitable spirit. The second volume in the delightful Fanfare for a Hometown series, The Band Plays On provides an entertaining, inspirational glimpse into lives richly lived…and shared.
Since my family did not immigrate to the US until the late 80's , I actually don't know much about 50's and 60's America except for what I have seen on TV. Reading The Ban Plays On has been wonderful because it gave me a real sense of what it was like growing up during that era in a small town. The story is told through Dr. Niece's memory of a small town and how it impacted him. It is a story about family values and education. As I was reading through the book, I found myself really enjoying the details he was able to provided about the daily lives of a small town population. I could not help but noticing how different things are today. His story is inspirational and heart warming.
If you buy books to give away as Christmas gifts like we do, I recommend giving this book a try!
