On March 22 the mighty 1070 band wagon of the Kelly Miller Circus was retired from service . The band wagon housed the band and the lighting guy during the show and like everything circus was multi purpose hauling
" the back door curtain " , heavy cable for lighting , show lights , sound equipment , ring curb , costumes , hang falls and served as a holding area and dressing / stretching area for the performers .
In honor of the people that played music here . Marshall Eckelman trumpet , Mike Harber drums , Lucky Eddy drums , Miss Vicky gets a mention for enduring and running the computer , Alan Thompson drums , Dan Reynolds drums and tuba ?
