Clover School District Auditorium and the United States Army Field band have teamed up to bring an exciting performance from the US Army Volunteers for Veterans Day at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11.
The Volunteers is the United States Army’s premier touring show band. Since its inception in 1981, this talented six-piece group has performed in all fifty states, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Belgium, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Performances by the Volunteers have included Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the Indianapolis 500, Nashville Now, the Calgary Stampede, and many state fairs and festivals across the country. The band has also appeared at sporting events of the San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles, Florida Marlins and Pittsburgh Steelers.
These musicians are equally at home performing before an outdoor crowd of 100,000 or at a hospital bedside. They have entertained audiences of all ages in venues ranging from state fair main stages and school auditoriums to senior citizen centers and children’s hospitals. For outstanding support of the Army’s community relations program, the members of the Volunteers have received the Army Community Relations Award of Excellence.
Performances by the Volunteers have been described as “outstanding entertainment with energy and inspiration.” The entire family will enjoy their exciting blend of popular American music, including rock ’n’ roll, standards, country, jazz, and patriotic.
Tickets are free. Call the auditorium at 803-222-8018 for more information.
