RIVER CITY RAP
Ever heard an actor by the name of Hugh? Hugh? Hugh? Yes! Just a minute, just a minute, just a minute. River City LOVES that actor Hugh. But he doesn’t know the territory. Doesn’t know the territory?! He’s the music man, going to play Harold Hill with Sutton Foster, and the big trombones, and the rat-a-tat drum, and the big brass bass. River City wants him! Yes, sir. Yes, sir. We will show him the territory!
THE REAL RIVER CITY
Hugh Jackman. Mr. Huuuuugh Jackman. What can we do, my dear, to catch your ear? We want you madly, madly Mr. Hugh Jackman, the music man. Oh, there’s nothing halfway about the Iowa way we’d treat you, when we treat you, when you come visit us all!
What words could be saner or truer or plainer than it’s Hugh, it’s Hugh. Yes, it’s Hugh. Oh, yes it’s Hugh.
WISH HUGH WERE HERE
Come learn about River City in a way a select few, like our own Meredith Willson, have experienced... as the Grand Marshal of our North Iowa Band Festival Parade! Yes, the very parade that inspired the award-winning film, The Music Man. Visit the REAL River City, where musical heritage is deep in our roots and is celebrated in the annual North Iowa Band Festival.
