CONCERTS IN THE PARK FINALE
THE COMMANDERS JAZZ ENSEMBLE – BIG JAZZ BAND

August 23rd, 6:30pm (rain or shine)
Cromwell Park
18030 Meridian Ave N, Shoreline 98133

Pack a picnic dinner, gather your family and friends, and come enjoy a free performance by the U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West Jazz Ensemble, at Cromwell Park on Wednesday, August 23rd, 6:30pm

This will be our final Concert in the Park this summer!

The Commanders, a newly-revived ensemble coming from the US Air Force Band of the Golden West, carries on the American musical tradition of the great big bands, yet offers a lot more than the big band sounds. This energetic group of highly-trained professional musicians, formed from 18 Airmen, delivers the full gamut of jazz music - traditional jazz, cool, bop, swing, Broadway favorites, and patriotic music. The Commanders offers an entertaining show you won't soon forget!

A typical evening with The Commanders might include favorites from Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Count Basie, and Dizzy Gillespie to the sounds of today's modern jazz groups delivered by the group's enchantingly talented vocalist. Their renditions of hot jazz feature rousing improvised solos from every instrument in the group. This is an ensemble capable of delivering a truly unique combination of entertainment.

We’re in for another beautiful night of outside music, so be sure to stay hydrated and try some infused waters at the Aegis Living of Shoreline’s free “Hydration Station.”
