Bands Liverpool High School Band - Roger Hemeon said there would have been no Mersey Band if �Rah� Murray (school principal in the 1940s) had not decided the school needed a band. �He took 25 kids...few who knew anthing about music of any kind let alone martial music...ran it like a classroom. �We practiced four hours a week and became one of the premier bands in Nova Scot in the 40s. We went everywhere, put on lots of concerts and basically had a ball,� recalled Roger. He said the Mersey band did not come together until the early 50s as he left Liverpool in May of 1949 and the highschool band was the only one at the time.
