~ In anticipation of "A Sentimental Journey"

 A special V-J Day Band Concert will take place Monday, August 17th at Barrie Park in Fort Atkinson.  "The 40s: A Sentimental Journey" will be presented at 7pm By the Palmyra-Eagle Community Band.  Attendees will be transported back to the magnificent WWII music that led America to victory 70 years ago. It was a time of swing music, sentimental ballads, and big band music that helped unify the nation.

Featured will be the Wisconsin native, NYC talent of Kim "Kimbirdlee" Fadner.
Honored guest Mark Grams, from the Stars and Striped Honor Flight will be on hand for narration.
The sounds of the USO clubs will be recreated by Jim Neist and the Kettle Moraine Blues Band.
Capping off the evening will be a special appearance of PECB Swing Dancers!

This is all on the tail of an exciting summer of concerts also featuring Kimbirdlee!
Here is a view to summer's vocal selections from "Come to the Fair"

Ed Pierce once again put together a spectacular concert program complete with grand opera, pop songs from the 20s, Broadway hits and sing-a-longs. I had the priviledge to sing on this program and enjoy the festive atmosphere with hundreds of folks out in the sweet park settings of Wisconsin.  

See you at the fair!
