Military Bands in America

May 22, 2015

A crowd of thousands bundled in coats and hats patiently awaits the coming of the new president at the U.S. Capitol. The sounds of band music fill the frigid air as families and political savants huddle together in an attempt to keep warm. Although the band struggles to play in the cold, the precise harmonies, well-balanced tone, and patriotic sounds show no indication of the freezing conditions they are performing in.

Join us from Friday, May 22 to Monday, May 25 during jazz hours as we remember those who fought for our country by presenting jazz performed by United States military bands. Jeff Duperon kicks off the festivities on Friday, May 22nd at 6 pm with music from The West Point Jazz Knights, the U.S. Army Blues, and many other military bands, old and new. This music continues all weekend long, until the Hot 11 Countdown kicks off at 10:30 pm on Monday.
