We all enjoy some "home grown" entertainment and especially when it is FREE. The time has come for The Cheyenne Civic Concert Band has kicked off their 2014 season.

The Cheyenne group is entirely all-volunteer and has been active in the community for the past 50 years.  They have many multigenerational family members that play together in the band. This in itself, makes the whole experience fun.

Their goal was to provide a fun event for good family entertainment. If you are interested in attending this FREE event, the dates and times are listed below.

July 17 at 7 p.m., "Christmas In July" - This features musical selections from "The Nutcracker" and "Christmas Festival."

August 7 at 7 p.m., Classic Band Literature" - This features more Classic arrangements of folk songs from the British Isles, Austrailia, the Far East and America. This is dedicated to the memory of Dr. James F. Clark who was a long-time member and trombone player.

August 21 at 7 p.m., "It Don't Mean A Thing, If It Ain't Got That Swing" which features the works of Duke Ellington and other great American composers. You'll hear songs such as: "Unforgettable", Lassus Trombone" and "Ain't Misbehavin'."
