Everyone has heard about the world famous Scottville Clown Band. For over 100 years they’ve been entertaining audiences with their foot-thumping music and amusing attire. You can catch a performance during Ludington and Manistee’s July 4th celebration, at Baldwin’s Troutarama, Pentwater’s Homecoming, and many Scottville events. When you see the Scottville Clown Band, you’re amused by their colorful attire and crazy antics.
When you hear them play, you’re amazed at their extraordinary talent. Perhaps their best performances are during the summer parades, with “The Stripper” being the favorite number. The horns, cymbals, and drums give the Clown Band their other name, “The Big Noise from Scottville.”
