The USAF Mobility Band is coming to McFadden Plaza on July 3.

It’ll be a rockin’ good time on McFadden Plaza the evening of Saturday, July 3 as the USAF Mobility Band of six full-time active duty Air Force musicians perform on the McFadden Plaza stage beginning around 5:30 p.m.
The talented members are part of the much larger U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West that has performed in Carson City a number of times.
The band is a high-energy pop and rock band stationed at Travis Air Force Base just outside of Sacramento. According to Senior Airman Michael Roe, “Our set for this tour is very country-heavy with some rock and pop sprinkled in for variety.”
Featured, too, will be some classic patriotic tunes that, according to Roe, “will be a great fit for the Fourth of July.” As with all USAF concerts, veterans will be honored with service songs and are encouraged to attend.
Q: How did the band choose to perform in Carson City when they could have gone so many other places?
A: Roe writes, “As we were looking ahead into this summer at the possibility of resuming live performances, we began brainstorming ideas for where we would like to get out and play. We have had a long-standing relationship with Carson City, and your audiences are always appreciative, so naturally, your city was a priority for us to get to as soon as possible. Carson City has been a great supporter of the Air Force and the Air Force Bands, and we are so excited to help celebrate Independence Day weekend with you all!”
According to the USAF Band of the Golden West website, the members of the Mobility Band represent the face of Air Mobility Command and Air Force recruiting, reaching audiences of over 600,000 annually and have shared the stage with entertainers such as Kid Rock, Daughtry, and Brad Paisley while creating memorable experiences.
The family event is brought to you by the Carson City Chamber of Commerce as a community service and to kick-off the Fourth of July holiday in high gear since we were unable to enjoy this patriotic celebration last year.
If you plan to attend, please bring your own chairs or enjoy watching from a front row seat at The Fox or Piazza as you enjoy dinner and drinks while watching this high-energy professional performance. Please watch the Chamber’s Facebook Page for any updates.
