Biography

The Firehouse Five Plus Two was a Dixieland jazz band, popular in the 1950s, consisting of members of the Walt Disney Studios animation department;

Danny Alguire — cornet
Harper Goff — banjo
Ward Kimball — trombone, siren, tambourine, sound effects, leader
Clarke Mallery — clarinet
Monte Mountjoy — drums
Ed Penner — bass saxophone on early recordings, but later switched to tuba
Frank Thomas — piano

Later, other Disney artists joined in; George Probert, Dick Roberts, Ralph Ball and George Bruns.

The band appeared in animated form in the 1953 Goofy animated short, “How to Dance”.

The band recorded at least thirteen LP albums, starting in 1955. The last album, “Live at Earthquake McGoon’s” was recorded in 1970 in San Francisco.

    They're pretty neat. It's cool to see Kimball and Thomas doing something other than animating cartoons. :D (2)
