Dog Days + Hurricane Season = Band Practice

It’s August, the time of Dog Days and Hurricane Season.  For some band members these events occur on Wednesdays after practice all year long.  For Reg our director, it’s time to get out a whole new set of tunes for the late summer and fall concerts, which feature a selection of swing band tunes and traditional marches.  While many bands are closing up for summer or just starting for the fall, the civic band is in full action.  Watch for the band’s flatbed trailer on August 8th at the annual Funfest Parade in North Manchester, followed by a concert in Akron August 28th.  Come September the band will be back at Peabody and Timbercrest, then performing their last outdoor concert September 27th at Doud’s Apple Orchard’s annual fall festival.  The days may be cooler, but the music will remain hot.  Find your way to a concert, or get out your horn and join the fun next Wednesday.  See you then!
