The Jammin' Airmen in Gloucester

The Air Force Airmen of Note, a touring band of 18 talented jazz musicians, performed a stellar free and open to the public concert of music at Gloucester High School last night at the GHS Auditorium. What a pleasure it was to watch and listen to this ensemble of the United States Air Force.

Created in 1950 to carry on the tradition of Major Glenn Miller's Army Air Forces dance band, the Airmen of Note is one of the last touring big bands in the country. Hosted by GHS Music Director Dan Fleury the Notes spent a portion of their day in Gloucester jamming with student members of the GHS Docksiders.
