1919 THE IRRESISTIBLE Royal Philippino String Band and Oriental Orchestra Ambrose Tolentino 1st Banduria Richard T. Ramos Laud Paul Apostle 2nd Banduria Figure Pio Q. Uzaraga Octavina Faust Enriques Guitarra Reynaldo Fernandez Manager and Director Bajo IN A TWO HOURS SPECIAL CONCERT of twenty instrumental and vocal numbers followed by three hours dancing with entire change of music. Playing the better theaters and appearing at private and public Concerts and Dances for the Elks, Knights of Pythias, Moose, American Legion, etc., playing under their auspices through special arrangement. In response to numerous pressing invitations we again represent, for their last season in this country, The Royal Philippino Band and Orchestra, as we have found there is a sufficient number of discriminating people in every community interested in music delightfully and attractively presented by a high-class and expensive organization. Their CONCERT program, especially, will please the most fastidious, being entirely different from anything ever offered, a musical sensation, a new wealth of oriental melody. At least once during your CONCERT-DANCE season you can afford a very special engagement of the most extraordinary value, rich in novelty, merit and attractiveness—a night in the Philippines Americanized. They are now finishing their last triumphal tour of the Pacific Coast under the management of Ellison and White, managers of Sousa's Band, and we ask your immediate co-operation in arranging for one, or possibly two nights, of their farewell tour. Practically all who have played them consider it a managerial duty, a tribute to genius, to arrange for a return date. Their dance music, entirely different from the concert, will never be forgotten by any who have whiled away golden fantastic hours to their bewitching syncopation of new sound. Big business has resulted every time a befitting special effort has been made—at 10 below zero the Watertown, Wis., ELKS played this most unique band to $648.11 and will play them again—see enclosed. The KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS have played return dates and want them again—so do the MOOSE—we enclose proof of same. The Foremost Musical Organization of the Philippine Islands Audience so entranced with the marvelous vocal and instrumental music of the Concert that they remained to listen to the dance music—a very significant and unmistakable compliment.— WATERTOWN WIS., DAILY TIMES. Suggestions as to different ways the Royal Philippino String Band and Orchestra can be played: During our introductory season, ending February 20, the Royal Philippino String Band and Orchestra was played, according to local conditions, in five different ways: A two hours' concert, followed by three hours' dance. Concert alone, without dance. Dance alone, without concert. A combination concert-dance, the concert numbers (20) played between dances—can do without stage, if necessary. A two hours' concert at theater, followed by three hours' dancing at a SEPARATE hall. The ideal way is the two hours' concert, followed by three hours' dancing, with entire change of music, in same theater or hall, where flat floor permits removal of seats for dancing. You are entitled to five hours' music in all. Let us know which way suits your local conditions best. Figure Information Wanted Seating capacity of theater and if dance can be given in same or separate hall—state size of hall and how many couples same can accommodate for the dance. Prices We want your immediate opinion regarding all prices—this is a very important point: Concert price for each adult? Concert price for each child? Dance price for couple, lady and gentleman? Dance price for extra lady? Dance price for single gentleman? Dance price for spectator—when space or room permits? Dance price for combination ticket, admitting to both concert and dance? REMEMBER this is a very high class and expensive attraction, so kindly suggest prices you think will draw the most money.
