Navy Band

16Aug11

Went to a free concert this evening by the U.S. Navy Band, held appropriately at the Navy Memorial in downtown DC. It was a beautiful evening, and the band was fantastic. It was a pretty eclectic program – things you’d expect like the National Anthem, a sea shanty, and a couple of patriotic “America is awesome” songs (which I didn’t recognise), along with lots of newer stuff like the theme from E.T. and “Up Where We Belong” from An Officer and a Gentleman. There was also an awkward section of songs to “celebrate African culture”. The songs? The theme from The Lion King, and “Africa” by Toto. Weird.
