The USAF Mobility Band, part of the USAF Band of the Golden West, will perform on the McFadden Plaza Stage after the Nevada Day Parade on Saturday.
The United States Air Force Band of the Golden West’s six-member Mobility Band is returning to Carson City to participate in this Saturday’s Nevada Day festivities.
The band will be performing throughout the parade as part of the City’s float, later performing a free concert on the McFadden Plaza Stage around 3:30 p.m.
Those who heard the band when they performed on the same stage in early July were surprised at their diversity of music since this group is not what you would think of as the “traditional” military band, though the six members can perform all sorts of tunes from classic to modern rock and country tunes. The concert, however, will not be focusing on the classics other than those now considered classic in the country and rock genre.
When the band performed here last, they were so enthused about the reception they received and the reaction of the audience, they asked to come back to perform. We suggested they be a part of the Nevada Day program and received permission to perform here again during our annual salute to Nevada statehood.
The USAF Mobility Band is a high-energy pop and rock band representing the more than 325,00 Air Force professionals serving around the world and is the face of the Air Mobility Command and Air Force Recruiting. They have performed for U.S. Presidents, international dignitaries, and major names in music and as Carson City has seen first-hand, they are happy to perform in local communities such as ours.
The Carson City Chamber is once again proud to sponsor this wonderful band bringing yet another musical dimension into the overall day’s festivities.
