America’s Hometown Band: Big Band Jazz

Calendar: Pruis Hall
Start: October 27, 2013 4 p.m.
End: October 27, 2013
Location: Pruis Hall

The history of the community band in Muncie goes back to the 1870′s with the Lockwood Band. The present band, formed in 1985, is the latest in a rich legacy of providing this musical public service. 

Directed by Dr. Phillip Cooley, this is a group that plays popular big band tunes for special occasions like the USO Dance, held every year before the 4th of July. Saxes, trumpets, trombones, and percussion will liven up your evening and get the joint jumping. 

This event is free and open to students.
