Fun fact!:  “The President’s Own” USMC Band’s national concert tour this October marks the 125th anniversary of their first tour.  The tradition began with John Philip Sousa in 1891 when he asked President Benjamin Harrison if the band could go on a tour outside of Washington.  “My years in Washington had taught me that if you wish to see the President, see his wife first.  So I asked for Mrs. Harrison.  She liked the idea of a tour and promised to speak to the President about it.  Next morning I was summoned to see the President.  As I entered the room, he rose, shook hands cordially, and leading me to one of the windows which faced the Potomac River said ‘Mrs. Harrison tells me that you are anxious to make a tour with the band.  I was thinking myself of going out of town and’ – with a smile – ‘it would be tough on Washington if both of us were away at the same time.  I have thought it over, and believe the country would rather hear you than see me; so you have my permission to go.’”
