This is part 3 of the band's performances at WSKG.

Back in 1975, the Joe Weber Band was called the "Top Hats'. It consisted of three musicians; Drums, Guitar, and Accordion. In 1984, the band changed its name to the "Joe Weber Band". Although losing the Guitar player, we added a female vocalist, Clarinet/Sax, and Trumpet. All through the years, we have entertained our audiences with Austrian/German music, and also 40's, 50's, and 60's modern.

The band started out by entertaining in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. In the early 1980's, the Joe Weber Band expanded their audience to Maine, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. We've also have done many cruises.
   
The Joe Weber Band performs in various shapes and forms, as a:
    Trio (Drums, Sax/Clarinet, Accordion )
    Trio plus female vocalist
    Trio plus another Brass
    Full band (Trumpet, Sax/Clarinet, Accordion, Drums, and Vocalist )

Joe Weber also performs solo with the ButtonBox, at many dinner events and socials where the Austrian/German atmosphere is needed.

History Detectives Special Investigations
Tue, 07/08/2014 - 9:00pm

One of the most celebrated, beloved entertainers of the wartime era takes off from England in heavy fog, heading to France to entertain troops. His plane vanishes. Glenn Miller’s disappearance is perhaps the biggest mystery and cold case of World War II. This HISTORY DETECTIVES investigation contains a great deal of new information: Miller’s pilot was a rank novice who had never flown over the English Channel, never mind in appalling weather; documents from a Lancaster bomber pilot support another possible accounting of the plane’s disappearance; and a 17-year old plane spotter’s notebook — discovered in 2012 at a UK Antiques Roadshow — answers a question that has long baffled investigators: which route did Miller’s aircraft take? In addition, the German-speaking Miller was working for the U.S. Army’s Psychological Warfare Division, recording German language propaganda broadcasts and musical performances.

POV

Who better to cover the Paralympics, the international sporting event for athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities, than Niko von Glasow, the world’s best-known disabled filmmaker? Unfortunately — or fortunately for anyone seeking an insightful and funny documentary — this filmmaker frankly hates sports and thinks the games are “a stupid idea.” Born with severely shortened arms, von Glasow serves as an endearing guide to London’s Paralympics competition. As he meets a one-handed Norwegian table tennis player, the Rwandan sitting volleyball team, an American archer without arms and a Greek paraplegic boccia player, his own stereotypes about disability and sports are delightfully punctured.
