Lucy (Lucille Ball) volunteers Ricky's band to perform for a Westport Historical Society fundraiser, assuming that he'll say yes when he finds out. Ricky (Desi Arnaz) finds out, all right, but the answer is no. Undaunted, Lucy organizes her own band, with herself on saxophone, Fred (William Frawley) on fiddle, Little Ricky (Richard Keith) on drums, and Ethel (Vivian Vance) as vocalist. This hilarious episode contains one of those endearing continuity gaffs so beloved of I Love Lucy buffs, as Lucy reveals that the only song she knows how to play is "She'll Be Coming' Round the Mountain" -- negating the information imparted in the second-season episode "The Saxophone," wherein Lucy's repertoire consisted solely of "Glow Worm."
