In the fall of 1936 Arthur received a letter from the San Francisco Golden Gate Committee inviting him and his boys to perform the following summer at the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. His band would be the only Canadian band in attendance. He gratefully accepted the invitation and the following summer he and his boys boarded a bus bound for San Francisco.
