and The 2010 Texas Association of Shrine Oriental Bands State Champions
We specialize in fun, fellowship, good music and good times.
Now we all don't know how to read music and some of us have never played anything harder than a radiobefore we joined. If you can play a musical instrument, that is great, but if you can't, we still want you. Our primary instruments are musettes (a reed instrument), drums, cymbals, bells, and tambourines.
Besides those who play in the band we have other members who carry flags and banners and function as actors.
During the year we show up at the Moslah Temple Shrine Circus, Fort Worth Parade of Lights, Granbury Fourth of July, and other places as we are invited. We have a trailer for the longer parades and events. How can we describe some of the fun that we have? Easy!
The Moslah Bedouins offer plenty of opportunities for participation. There are band practices, Texas Shrine Association Mid-Winter meetings, Oriental Band competition, Imperial Shrine competition, parades, picnics, golfing, dove hunts, numerous parties both formal and informal. However, the best thing about being a member of the Oriental band is the fellowship. The Moslah Bedouins have fun any time we can find a reason to get together. Noble or lady, you will find that we have a bunch of friendly folks that enjoy a good time, and we are always looking for others who also want to enjoy their Shrine membership and experience the good life.
The Bedouin Stated Meetings held the first Tuesday of each month at the Shrine Center/Masonic Temple on 1100 Henderson Street, starting at 7:00 PM. Practices are usually also held at Moslah Shrine Center in the band room, lasting about one hour.
There are several classes of membership but the primary ones offered to new members are Active and Social. We are a family oriented unit. We are also the largest unit in Moslah and have loads of fun. Try us, you'll like what we do!
