U.S. Air Force Band to play at COM
The U.S. Air Force Band of the West's jazz band, Dimensions in Blue, will perform a free jazz concert Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. in the College of the Mainland Learning Resource Center.
The family-friendly concert will feature modern, jazz and patriotic classics.
The Dimensions in Blue ensemble generates excitement through performances of America’s only original art form: jazz. As one of the Air Force’s finest and most versatile big bands, Dimensions in Blue features 18 talented musicians from around the country. The band currently tours over 30,000 miles and entertains over a million people each year.
Since its inception, Dimensions in Blue has kept the 1940s Glenn Miller Army Air Corps sound at the center of its musical focus. As Dimensions in Blue’s musical heritage and reputation has grown, it has incorporated a more contemporary sound in order to connect with today’s generation while entertaining and inspiring audiences of all ages with some of the biggest names in the jazz world.
From working with high schools and colleges to promote music education to fostering national pride and patriotism through community relations concerts, Dimensions in Blue’s commitment to musical excellence reflects the core values of the U.S. Air Force.
Proudly performing in the vintage “pinks and greens” as well as the modern “blues” of today’s Air Force, Dimensions in Blue delivers world-class musical entertainment and demonstrates Air Force integrity, service and excellence.
