HOT NEWS FROM JIM 5/12/22

Hello all! We are very happy to welcome four new members to our ever-growing Band of Happy Musicians. Please visit our “Caring Corner” which will soon include a brief introduction of these new members.

I am so excited about our return performance at the “Ohio Veterans’ Memorial Park” 8005 Cleveland-Massillon Rd. in Clinton, Ohio 44216 on May 30th. Call time is 1:00 pm. We will move to performance PLACES at 1:10. Warm Up with Jaime at 1:20, and the Concert will begin at 1:30. Please wear your ROYAL BLUE ENSEMBLE SHIRT, but otherwise dress for comfort in the SUN! You may wear hats, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen! BRING DRINKING WATER!!!!! You must also bring your own music stand and music which you have prepared to combat the wind and can be raised and lowered for the finale piece “Stars and Stripes for Ever”. Here is the Concert Music Order:

  • National Anthem
  • Ukrainian National Anthem
  • Knights of Destiny
  • Liberty Bell March
  • Amparito Roca
  • God Bless the U.S.A.
  • Marches of the Armed Forces
  • God Bless America
  • Wreath-Laying Ceremony (U.S. Army Drum Cadence and Taps)
  • Stars and Stipes Forever.

Please bring family and friends understanding that this is a “LAWN CHAIR PERFORMANCE”. Chairs will be provided for the Musicians (performing Members of our Ensemble), but the audience must bring their own folding lawn chairs.

It is a great HONOR to be asked to perform in recognition of those Americans who have made the greatest of all sacrifices protecting and preserving our Liberty! I believe that this is the most important and most prestigious performance of the year. Thank you all for joining me in preparation for our absolute best effort!

Here are the tentative Summer and Autumn Performance Dates:

  • June 26th – Akron Cooperative Farm, Akron
  • July 10th – Emmanuel/Johnson Churches Concert, Doylestown
  • August 27th – Royal Docks Summer Party Concert; Canton
  • September 25th – Barberton MumFest; Barberton
  • November 13th – Festival of Trees; Knight Center, Akron

WE NEED HELP! If you own a Truck or large Van, please CONSIDER meeting us at the MAPS museum next Tuesday, May 17th at 2:00. We will be moving our music stands and timpani from storage at the museum to a rental facility in Wadsworth. Should only take about 2 hours! Thanks!!!!

Jim
