U.S. AIR FORCE BAND OF MID AMERICA’S “STARLIFTER” BAND TO PLAY AT THE SAULT SUMMER ARTS FESTIVAL
The “Starlifter” Band will play at this year’s arts festival August 2. “Starlifter” is a branch of the U.S. Air Force Band of MidAmerica, from Scott Air Force Base in southern Illinois. According to the Air Force, the versatile seven piece band “performs in virtually every musical idiom, from Rock and Pop to Jazz and Country, to great contemporary and traditional patriotic songs. They feature the best in popular music from the 1970’s to the most current sounds at the top of today’s charts.” The members include two vocalists, guitar, keyboard, bass, drums and audio engineer. Members of the U.S. Air Force Band of Mid America are excellent professional musicians. We have had the privilege of twice hosting the band’s woodwind quintet, the “Midwest Winds” in Alberta House (2007 and 2014) and, to put it mildly, it was a great experience!
Performance time is tentatively set for 6 p.m. on the festival stage, and like all festival entertainment, will be free of charge. For more information about the group, log on: http://www.bandofmidamerica.af.mil/ensembles/BandEnsembleBio.asp?EnsembleID=110.
