BANGOR - The Bangor Band performed its first of three concerts scheduled for this week. Tuesday's was at Bangor High School's Peakes Auditorium.
Originally slated for Cascade Park, the concert had to be moved inside, out of weather concerns.
Up next, the Bangor Band will perform during the fourth of July parade, and also Thursday night, as part of the "Cool Sounds Concert Series" in Pickering Square.
Band Treasurer Sue McKay, says all are excited to play on the fourth!
"Well the fun thing about 'Cool Sounds' is a) we've never done a 'Cool Sounds' and they always have a huge turnout for it, especially with all the vendors. So it makes it more of a carnival type of atmosphere. Also because it's the fourth of July, our nation's Independence Day, we'll play all of the wonderful patriotic pieces," McKay explains.
