Joseph Basile and His Orchestra of Newark, 1922, Photograph
Joe Basile is a live wire director of band and orchestra. He has appeared at Madison Square Garden in New York with his Band on several important engagements and his Orchestra enjoys popularity in New York and surrounding cities. This past winter Mr. Basile was engaged in Chicago for several weeks and his organization is booked up for the season. The instruments are Conns of course and Mr. Basile is a Cornet soloist of unusual ability and has played a Conn cornet for many years. He plays the Victor.
"The Conn Instruments in my Orchestra and Band are the best I can find any where on earth. I have tried them all. 1 believe in the Conn product thoroughly and am convinced they g;ive by far the best results. They are in tune, possess the best tone, easier to play and are great in mechanical construction and latest improvements." - JOE BASILE
