The Disneyland Band has been an institution at the Anaheim theme park since it opened in 1955. But on March 31, musicians were served an "end of run" notice, as "reimagining" will add a new sound and high-energy choreography. Longtime members of the 16-person group -- one has been in it for 44 years -- were invited to reaudition at dancing and acting tryouts.
To add insult to injury, the band's final performance will be July 16, one day before the park's 60th-anniversary celebration.
This is a joke, right? No one who has even half a brain would make such a stupid decision.
