Busy fourth for the island band
The Jamestown Community Band will march in the North End parade in the morning and present a concert at Mackerel Cove before the fireworks start on July 4.
Music will include patriotic pieces such as "America the Beautiful," and the "Armed Forces Salute." John Philips Sousa marches and swing tunes such as "Big Band Bop," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," and "Salute to the Duke," will have everyone tapping their toes.
The band will begin playing at Mackerel Cove about 45-minutes prior to the start of the fireworks display, which is scheduled for 9:15 p.m.
