If you long for the days of big band and classic swing music, you're in luck. The 2nd Company Governor's Foot Guard Band will perform at Trinity Lutheran Church, playing a variety of classic songs. The 17-piece band is the musical complement to one of the oldest military units in U.S. history. The Guard dates back to 1775, and its members have fought in all wars from the Revolutionary War to World War II. The concert will benefit the restoration of Trinity Church's Cassavant pipe organ, another historical relic. Beer, wine, and food will be available at the church.
