Famous quotes containing the word band:

    Citizen’s Band radio renders one accessible to a wide variety of people from all walks of life. It should not be forgotten that all walks of life include conceptual artists, dry cleaners, and living poets.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)

    And the heavy night hung dark
    The hills and waters o’er,
    When a band of exiles moored their bark
    On the wild New England shore.
    Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1783–1835)

    There was a young lady called Gloria
    Who was had by Sir Gerald Du Maurier
    And then by six men
    And Sir Gerald again
    And the band of the Waldorf-Astoria.
