The Salon Orchestra presented by Tinkle Bass Works out of Las Vegas played at the Caliente Depot on August 4.

With the sun setting on August 4, a touch of culture came to the Caliente Depot, taking many back in time when families gathered around the radio in their homes and listened to the sound of an orchestra playing. As Tinkle Bass played, the Swallows that nest in the eaves flew around tweeting to the music.

Sitting outside people gathered to listen to Salon Orchestra presented by Tinkle Bass Works out of Las Vegas. Selections from ‘’ The Sound of Music,” “The Mikado” and other hits were played, time passed too fast, according to attendees.
