Entertainment was a bit different back in the 1920s. There were no streaming movies or iPods, but there was live music. Here is an Eatonville dance band — the TNT Band — that at least performed one Monday night.

Band members here were:
• E. Hillberg on bass drum
• Charley Williams on snare drum
• Canty with tuba
• Leon Williams, slide trombone
• F. Dunkhorst, conductor
• F. Canty – french horn (alto)
• Dave Peterson, cornet
• Axel Green, cornet
• H. Hekel, instrument in case
