Begin your Fourth of July holiday by enjoying the patriotic sounds of Allen’s own ACB Jazz at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 3 at the Allen Public Library. Listen to songs from America’s past, such as American Patrol, American Songbook, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and God Bless the USA, as well as other great tunes of Americana.
ACB Jazz is comprised of members from a variety of occupations; from college students, bankers, teachers and even some retired. Its parent organization is the Allen Community Concert Band, open to anyone who has an instrument and a willingness to dust it off and get their lips back into shape. Most of the jazz band players also play with the concert band.
Under the direction of Keith Petersen, ACB Jazz is fast becoming well known throughout the Metroplex, playing classical big band tunes as well as jazz and more contemporary songs.
Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the concert is free. Call 214-509-509-4911. The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr.
