The 41st Army Band makes its way to the Coast
Tonight, the musical ambassadors of the U.S. Army held a free concert for the community at the Biloxi Lighthouse Park pavilion.
The 41st Army Band is made up of five music performance teams. Tonight their rock and New Orleans style brass band made their way to the Coast for a live show. The band is stationed in Jackson and is made up for more than three dozen soldiers from six states. They train throughout the year and perform at various venues and for local, state, and national dignitaries.
News 25 spoke to Specialist Justin Gautreaux. He tells us about what an honor it is to represent the Army National Guard nationwide. “To be able to share that message of our talents as a family, as a unit, to be able to showcase ourselves and individuals within the unit, but not only do that, but also promote the Army National Guard as a whole because without the sacrifice of the men and women of the state and of our nation, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
The band will also hold two performances on Wednesday. One will be at the Vandenberg Commons on Keesler at 5:30 p.m. and a jazz combo performance will take place at the White House Hotel at 6 p.m.
