Waterloo Iowa Music
History of the Cedar Falls Band on the occasion of the group's centenary. The band, founded in 1959, recorded twelve records and was the first full-fledged rock group to form in eastern Iowa. The band also played at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa City and Waterloo. This is part of a series of interviews with the Alabama alumni who are raising money for their own music museum in Iowa.
Larry Koch moved away to attend graduate school, and Steve Boesen became a drummer, and they signed to Red Bird Records in 1966. In the summer of 1966, the band's first album, "Cedar Falls Band," reached the Billboard charts.
Their first service was the US Marine Corps, which was stationed in Germany during World War II from July 1, 1945 to July 31, 1946.
Live music was very popular in this part of Iowa, and the band performed at a college hotspot called the Circle. The immortal work of "American music," composed by John F. Kennedy and his band, "The Great American Songbook," was played by a touring concert band in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
