About the event

GET TICKETS HERE!

The Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble, part of the USAF Band of Mid-America, performs a variety of styles, ranging from traditional big band jazz to bebop, swing, and modern jazz. At one of their concerts you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Glenn Miller.

The ensemble has backed many jazz greats such as Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Allen Vizzutti, and Jeff Jarvis, and is often requested for featured performances at jazz clinics and festivals throughout the country. Several of the band’s members are also gifted composers and arrangers, and their compositions are often featured in concert. Whether performing for a head of state, before a capacity crowd in our 10-state touring area, or for our troops at home or abroad, the Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble reflects the heritage and pride of our great nation and the United States Air Force.

The United States Air Force Band of Mid-America represents the professionalism and excellence found every day throughout the United States Air Force. During our band concerts you will hear many of your favorites played by groups ranging in size and genre from our smaller quintets to our jazz band and concert band. All musicians are active-duty Airmen stationed at Scott AFB in Illinois.
