Two things are coming together to make for a great night out: a high-quality renowned band live, in-concert, and NO admission charge. Am I right? This is especially wonderful for anyone on a tight budget right now who really needs to get out of the house after two very long years of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and missing out on so many canceled events.

USAF Heritage of America Bands - the Heritage Winds and Heritage Brass are presenting a free concert on March 16, starting at 7:00 pm at Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta, NY with the doors opening at 6:30 pm. Anyone coming to this show has to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination along with a photo ID, and masks will be required.

The USAF Heritage of America Bands consist of a variety of musical ensembles with top-notch military musicians:

- The Concert Band: This band is made up of over 40 professional Airman-musicians who tour on a regular basis throughout the East Coast playing renditions of orchestral classics, marches, Broadway hits, jazz standards, music from films and patriotic favorites.
- Full Spectrum is a “pop & hip-hop” band: This energetic band bringing old school hip-hop and newer pop favorites is based out of Virginia and gears its playlist toward young people with the goal to inspire.
- Heritage Brass Band: This amazing group incorporates brass (of course), percussion, and vocals
- Heritage Winds: an excellent woodwind quintet of professional musicians who play music that honors our veterans, inspires patriotism, and communicates the Air Force's story.
- Rhythm in Blue Jazz Ensemble: These musicians bring exciting and uplifting music to inspire patriotism and tell the Air Force story.
- The American Clarinet Quartet: This group is made up of four highly accomplished musicians who present an exciting and polished program wherever they go.

These Airforce bands travel up and down the east coast presenting free concerts and inspiring, and representing the United States Airforce in the best way they know how, through the power of music, as they go. If they happen to recruit people to join the Airforce, they certainly don't mind.
