We find here a number of players who would soon join John Philip Sousa's Band, including John S. Cox, R. Noyes, E. A. Lefebre, T. F. Shannon, Herman Bellstedt, Joseph Michele Raffayola, Eldon Baker, and Herman C. Conrad. Modern readers will notice a few strange instruments including the antoniophone, an instrument similar to the French horn.
