Our military services provide safety and protection to many, but what you probably didn’t know is that some of them also provide entertainment too. More specifically, musical entertainment.
Every year, the United States Navy Band perform sold out concerts to the people of the United States and for those of us not lucky enough to grab a ticket, we have a brilliant video to watch from our homes.
Established in 1925, the United States Navy Band has been serving the ceremonial needs of the government by performing at events such as presidential inaugurations and other important events. With 200 musicians and officers, the Navy Band perform many different genres and styles of music; the band is noticed as one of the finest military bands in the world.
Their most popular performance event is their annual holiday concert, which is performed every December to packed-out audiences. As a less formal event, the band is able to have a bit more fun and show off their talents by singing whatever songs they would like to.
In this particular performance, from their Christmas concert at Constitutional Hall, four soldiers stand on stage in sunglasses, suits and brightly-coloured scarves, resembling festive Blues Brothers. After a comedic introduction, the four men break into perfect harmony and stand out solos as they blow away the audience with their incredible rendition of ‘White Christmas’.
Backed by a live band, the four singers are a pleasure to watch as they sing and dance their way through the Irving Berlin song. If this video is anything to go by, then the Navy Band’s annual Christmas concert is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!
Watch the video for yourself to see the brilliant performance for yourself. I bet you can’t watch it without tapping your foot along!
