Fun in Superior

On Sunday, May 29, 1st Nebraska traveled from Omaha to Superior, NE, about 3 hours southwest of us and on the Nebraska-Kansas border. Superior is known as the Victorian Capital of Nebraska and the city has several restored Victorian era houses, or “painted ladies” as one of our members call them.

Superior’s City Park was the site for our evening concert, and we played in the park’s very nice band shell. A good-sized crowd assembled, sitting in the shade with their lawn chairs. The crowd was very appreciative of our music and wanted more when we finished our last number. City Park is also the location of a memorial to soldiers from the area who fought in the Civil War. 1st Nebraska dedicated the playing of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” to those soldiers and their monument.

Twice 1st Nebraska made the front page of the Superior Express! The paper even reported that we have been asked back for 2018. We certainly look forward to a return to this very friendly community located in south-central Nebraska.

Next up for 1st Nebraska is a performance for the Stromsburg Swedish Festival on Saturday, June 17, at 7:30 pm in the City Park. We’ll also ride in the parade at 6:00. This is a great chance for those in the York area to hear the band play this year.
