FAC – 101st Army Dixieland Band
June 17, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 8:30 pm
Be sure to join us for our Friday Afternoon Club kick off with the 101st Army Dixieland Band! You can ride the tram free after 4pm (with coupon from Glenwood Post Independent) to enjoy this incredible show, which will be held on the stage in the plaza.
The instruments of the band — trumpet, clarinet, trombone, tuba, banjo, piano and drums — have been synonymous with revelry for over a century. This mirthful military band’s repertoire features music from the beginning of jazz, bringing the hits of Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Jelly Roll Morton and many others to a new generation of traditional jazz enthusiasts.
Regular favorites at the legendary Sacramento Jazz Jubilee and Monterey Dixieland Band Bash, they have also performed for senators, governors and heads of state from around the world. As a component of the Colorado National Guard’s 101st Army Band, these soldiers honor their nation through the most original American art form – jazz!
