The Marcus Center announced that the Airmen of Note (US Air Force jazz ensemble) will be performing in Uihlein Hall on Wednesday May 1 beginning at 7:30. Special thanks to Waterstone Bank for sponsoring the concert.
Stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., the Airmen of Note is one of six musical ensembles that comprise The U.S. Air Force Band. Created in 1950 to continue the tradition of Major Glenn Miller's Army Air Forces dance band, the current band consists of 18 active duty Airmen musicians including one vocalist.
Through the years, the Airmen of Note has presented its own brand of big band jazz as well as more contemporary forms of jazz to audiences via annual tours across the United States, deployments around the world and local performances throughout metropolitan Washington, D.C. For smaller, more intimate venues, the Airmen of Note Combo and various individual musicians perform apart from the full band to support military and civilian ceremonial and diplomatic events.
A General Admission ticket is required and is available in person at the Marcus Center’s Box Office at 929 North Water Street, Downtown Milwaukee or by calling 414-273-7206. For more information, please see the Marcus Center web site.
