The U.S. Army Blues, part of the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” is the premier jazz ensemble of the United States Army. They will be performing a free concert at Eastern Greenbrier Middle School on Saturday, Apr. 9, at 7 p.m.
After informal beginnings in 1970, this 18-piece ensemble became an official element of the Army Band in 1972. Comprised of exceptional jazz musicians from across the nation, the Army Blues strive to fulfill their mission through public concerts, educational outreach, and the preservation of the tradition of America’s unique art form: jazz.
The concert is free and open to the public.
This event is sponsored by the West Virginia Jazz Orchestra, Greenbrier Music Educators, and Local 674 of the AFM.
