About: Available as a marching band for parades or as a concert band for park concerts and special events, our musical program is designed to excite the patriotic spirit in your audience.
Our concert program is comprised of four segments:
I. Salute to Parades
Every summer, we participate in parades in the southeastern Michigan area. These events range from veterans’ commemorations to civic celebrations. In this segment, we perform our favorite parade marches and popular swing hits that were derived from marches.
II. Salute to American Entertainment
College football fight songs, baseball, festival and circus music are included. This segment is sure to stir fond memories in every member of the audience.
III. Salute to our Armed Forces
A fitting tribute to our men and women in uniform, we perform the official theme songs of the five branches, along with other famous military songs. A dramatic moment is created by the reciting of President Abraham Lincoln’s popular “Gettysburg Address” over the strains of “Battle Hymn of the Republic”.
IV. Patriotic Salute
We perform medleys of America’s favorite patriotic songs, some dating back to World War I. John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” provides a rousing grand finale.
Each segment contains arrangements especially adapted for our baritone vocalist, thus enhancing rapport with the audience. Bright red vests further add to the festive atmosphere.
Treat your guests to a program of extraordinary musical variety by calling upon The Spirit of America Band to perform for your event
