The band was formed by Mary Gibbons, former director of the Elderton High School Band and her husband, Kevin, former director of the Kittanning Fireman’s Band. Several of the musicians are retired or current band directors and music teachers. The Band specializes in swing music from the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s and will perform favorites of the big band era. The audience enjoys singing along loving the nostalgia the music creates.
This is the first in a series of Summer Sunday Patio Concerts. The East Winds Symphonic Band is scheduled for July 22 and Benny Benack Quartet in August 12.
