The Navy Band!
And the video...these guys rock pretty good. Some amazing horn players!
Well, that's one tiny little ensemble of Navy Band members...but it's hardly "The Navy Band".
And that's just the DC band...
Navy Band Northeast - Home Port is Newport RI
They have been playing in NYC at Fleet Week and next in Boston....
They are certainly fine musicians! They were doing everything from Michael Jackson to New Orleans stuff.....to patriotic tunes.
Yup...lots of talented young men & women. The other services' bands ain't too shabby either.
Even back in military school, the band had a very special status. It was truly being a rock star......they lived very differently then the rest of us! Most of their time was playing and practice. I guess it's a time honored tradition.
But I do think more of the Navy when I think of bands...so does Martha, who was a orchestral drummer in school. Somehow a band playing when the ship arrives seems more romantic than when a jet comes in.....or a tank.
Marine Corps Marching Band will blow your socks off.
This is your Navy Band Northeast from Newport RI (the whole thing, I think). Check out their rendition of "When the Saints Go Marching In"...could be the clip that comes up cued...but they're labeled in any case.
