“The happiest band I have heard in a long time.”

On July 27, 1962, the Dixieland jazz band Firehouse Five Plus Two recorded their performance at the Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland. The band was made up of several Disney employees, including leader Ward Kimball, Frank Thomas, Harper Goff, Danny Alguire, Clarke Mallery, Monte Mountjoy, and Ed Penner. This would be the first of two performances recorded and later released on albums through the Good Time Jazz Records label.
