Name: US Air Force Band of the Golden West – The Commanders Jazz Ensemble
Date: August 27, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT
Under the direction of Master Sergeant Jeremy Laukhuf, The Commanders Jazz Ensemble carries on the American musical tradition of the great traveling big bands, yet offers a lot more than the big bands sounds. This energetic group of 20 highly-trained professional airmen-musicians offers an entertaining show you won’t soon forget! During a concert you’re likely to hear the music of jazz legends Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, and County Basie as well as cotemporary big band leaders and composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Maria Schneider. No concert would be complete without a tribute to the late Major Glen Miller and his famous Army Air Corp band. Featuring outstanding soloists as well as a superb vocalist, The Commanders is an ensemble capable of delivering a powerful musical performance.
