Salute to America’s Heroes Concert scheduled for Sept. 1

Posted on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at 2:45 pm

The USAF Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue jazz ensemble will present a concert at the American Legion in Louisiana, on Sept. 1 2018 at 7:00 pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
Presented in partnership with the Pike County Bicentennial Commission, this is a family-friendly, all-ages event.

Shades of Blue is a group of 13 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members, and honors our country’s veterans.

During a concert, attendees are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary jazz composers and the classic sounds of Count Basie or Maj. Glenn Miller. The band features instrumental and vocal soloists, as well as compositions and arrangements by its own talented members.
