 The Commanders Jazz Ensemble, part of the US Air Force Band of the Golden West from Travis AFB CA, is swinging into Sandy, UT for a FREE concert at the Sandy Amphitheater. For more information, contact 801-568-2787.

Under the direction of Master Sergeant Jeremiah True, The Commanders Jazz Ensemble carries on the American musical tradition of the great traveling big bands, yet offers a lot more than the big band sounds. This energetic group of highly-trained professional airmen-musicians plays everything from traditional jazz, cool, bop and swing to Broadway favorites, popular tunes, Latin rhythms, and patriotic music. The Commanders offers an entertaining show you won't soon forget!

During a concert you’re likely to hear the music of jazz legends Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Count Basie and Charlie Parker as well as contemporary big band leaders and composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Maria Schneider. And no concert would be complete without a tribute to the late Major Glenn Miller and his famous Army Air Corp band. Featuring outstanding soloists as well as a superb vocalist, The Commanders is an ensemble capable of delivering a powerful musical performance.

Touring the western states of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Arizona, the US Air Force Band of the Golden West has performed for thousands of listeners in live concert appearances and for millions worldwide via its numerous recordings and television and radio broadcasts. As the only active-duty Air Force band west of the Rockies, the Band of the Golden West is dedicated to using the power of music to inspire our Air Force members and the great nation we serve, producing innovative musical programs and products, and communicating Air Force excellence.
