"G.O.P. March" by Charles Kisco
By Joyce Buckingham

I have an old player roll entitled "The G.O.P. March, played by
the Composer, Charles Kisco."  It is on a Mignon roll, number 2554.
I have tried to find out more about this march, and can learn nothing.
Do you have any information about it?

 [ "(Robert) Shoemaker's name also appears on rolls produced by the
 [ smaller Mignon company of Bridgeport, Connecticut, around 1920 --
 [ one example being "The American Legion - March" by Vandersloot,
 [ composed in 1920.  The roll was issued as #2432, played as a duet
 [ with Charley Kisco, who later became a well-known composer and
 [ bandleader."

 [ Charles W. "Charley" Kisco (1896-1985) was a pianist in a vaudeville
 [ orchestra at 14 and he recorded player-piano rolls.  He also was
 [ a pianist in vaudeville theaters and for the George White Scandals
 [ before turning to composition.  Ref. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0457123/bio
