Entertainment Groups

Dues Band basketball band Brass & Sass

The entertainment groups consist of Dues Band, Brass & Sass, Lady Bear Basketball Band, Bear Mania Basketball Band and High Society.

The Dues Band is an 18-piece big band that has become a favorite wherever they play. All of the big band memories of Glenn Miler, Tommy Dorsey, Clyde McCoy, Woody Herman, Count Basie, Ray Anthony, Duke Ellington, and Les Brown are brought back to life when the band kicks into its lively renditions of the big band favorites.

Brass & Sass is a 16-member show band styled in the "Disney" tradition. A street parade, a "stand and blow" concert, or an old-fashioned "concert-in-the-park" is easily presented by this exciting star-spangled group! The group plays all varieties of music (marches, rock, jazz, patriotic, etc.). The enthusiasm and energy of the group have made them a favorite performer not only at banquets and conventions, but as a yearly regular at the Ozark Empire Fair, at Disney World and frequently at Silver Dollar City as well.

The Basketball Bands have often been referred to as the teams' "sixth man" or as the "secret weapon". They have been the talk of the Missouri Valley Conference.

The High Society embraces memories of raccoon coats, flappers, and "23 Skidoo" with their fun repertoire!
