Summer Concert Series: U.S. Army Blues
July 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us on July 6, 7 PM, as the U.S. Army Blues perform at the National Museum of the Marine Corps!
The U.S. Army Blues, part of the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” is the premier jazz ensemble of the US Army. After informal beginnings in 1970, this 18-piece ensemble became an official element of the Army Band in 1972. The Army Blues strive to fulfill their mission through public concerts, educational outreach, and the preservation of the tradition of America’s unique art form: jazz.

Please enjoy extended hours before the concert begins. The Museum and Store will be open until 7:00 PM. Tun Tavern will be open until 6:00 PM.
