Getty Herschel Huffine (25,08.1889 - 12,02.1947) was an American music composer, trombonist and tuba player. He was born in Bowling Green Kentucky, the eldest of 4 children
He was employed at an axe handle factory and, when the local town band was organized in 1907, he joined and played the valve trombone. He was a self-taught musician. During the next 5 years, he taught himself tuba as well as the basics of harmony, counterpoint and composition. He spent his mature years as a tuba player in professional bands and circus bands. It is said he worked for C.L. Barnhouse as a music engraver. In 1919 he settled in Binghamton, New York playing in the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Factory band playing the tuba, as well as filling in on trumpet, trombone, and string bass based on information from Endicott-Johnson Co.
The Endicott-Johnson shoe band where he was a a member played his famous march, "Them Basses", at the graveside. Sunlife (Stanshawe) Band close our show this week with this march.
