March 23, 2010 - "The Cruisers," the United States Navy Band's eight-piece vocal and instrumental ensemble from Washington, D.C., will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 22 at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, located at 600 N. Ashley Drive.
As the U.S. Navy's premier contemporary entertainment ensemble, the Cruisers feature seven of the Navy's most dynamic performers. The newest specialty unit of the United States Navy Band, the Cruisers are under the leadership of vocalist, Musician 1st Class Leon Alexander. The group takes its name from the Navy's versatile, flexible, multi-missioned ship - the Cruiser - and the members live up to their namesake by presenting a variety of music including classic rock, rhythm and blues, oldies from the 50s and 60s, Motown favorites, as well as today's top 40 hits. The sheer energy of their concerts never fails to overwhelm their audiences, who often feel compelled to clap, sing, or even dance along with the group.
Concert goers may bring blankets and lawn chairs. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in city parks. Concessions will be available to purchase.
