The band headed the Hoosier delegation to the national convention of the American Legion in Boston, Massachusetts in October, 1930, where Indiana Governor Paul V. McNutt led a parade featuring many marching bands from around the country. The band also competed against approximately 400 other bands there. After the convention, they travelled to New York and Washington, D.C., where they participated in parades and gave concerts. In Washington, D.C., they visited the White House where they performed for President Herbert Hoover on October 10, 1930, before returning to Indiana by train.
