Events on 07/01/2013 - 08/25/2013:

                           The New Band of Flight

                                         Wright Brass

                                            Systems Go

Recently I had heard the Band of Flight would be leaving our area due to cut-backs in the military budget but fortunately for us, this is not true. They have downsized into what I have been told is a leaner, meaner group along with a couple of very versatile combos, which are now all led by non-commissioned officers. The New “Band of Flight” under the direction of Chief Master Sergeant Eric M. Strohecker is a 14-member ensemble that provides top-notch, high-energy entertainment for the whole family. The “Wright Brass” led by Master Sergeant Michael Richter is a brass quintet with a percussionist. “Systems Go” is a popular music combo led by MSgt Tom Shriver performing many genres of music.

A free to the public evening of musical big band fun along with open art studios, art exhibitions, food and wine.
Event on 07/11/2013:

 During the art and studio viewing portion of our Hope Art Center event, Cameron Voorhees will provide some outstanding guitar music for the attendees until the big band concert starts at 7:30

Retired Master Sergeant Cameron R. Voorhees was a Guitarist with the United States Air Force Band of Flight's Concert Band, Night Flight, and Prism Brass, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. Cameron is one of many Band of Flight members both past and present who make a tremendous impact in our local jazz scene. A couple of years ago I met Cameron at Jazz Central where he was a regular part of their jazz jams for a period of time. One thing led to another and he helped me book the Band of Flight Nighthawk Jazz Combo (one of the groups of which he was a member), for Jazz Advocate’s 2011 Jazz & Peace Festival that we held at at Stubbs Park Centerville.
