Stonewall Brigade Band Loses Bob Moody

It was very sad to read about the passing of the leader of the nation's oldest community band, the Stonewall Brigade Band's, Mr. Bob Moody. My family and I have, for many years, enjoyed their summer Monday evening concerts at Gypsy Hill park in Staunton, Virginia. The band and their concerts are a stubborn (and welcome) vestige of small town Southern community events that continue to hang on--often by a thread--in many communities.

Mr. Moody will be missed.
