The Kosair Oriental Band Unit
The Oriental Band meets every Monday at 8 PM, with a business meeting on the 1st Monday of the month.
The Oriental Band was started in 1919. It has been serving Kosair Shrine proudly ever since.
There are 30 active and reserve bandsmen. We dress in colorful Arabian theme costumes. We play horns, drums, tambourines, triangles, a gong, and two unusual "pogos".
With the support of our Ladies, known as "The Harem", we perform our own brand of "music" at public parades and special events. We perform so that people will know of the Shriners' devotion and dedication to help crippled children to walk.
