Marshall Rotary Band July 22

Between the costs, the time and the travel challenges, traditional concert band performances are becoming a scarcity. Despite these obstacles, the talented Marshall Rotary Band keeps going strong, and they’re ready to strike up a tune at this year’s summer concert series.

You’ll soon be clapping your hands to crowd favorites, including show tune medleys, marches, ragtime, Dixieland, and traditional concert band pieces. The band puts on six concerts each year, including a performance in Albion to kick off our summer series.  Don’t miss these talented musicians as they wrap up their series of concerts by putting our concert series in full swing. It’s that time again to Think Music Think Albion™.

2018 Season Announced!

We have our 2018 Swingin’ at the Shell summer concert series line-up all buttoned up and ready to go! We’re especially excited about this year because it is our 15th anniversary and we think our line-up is fitting of a BIG anniversary. Each concert is free and open to the public. All concerts are held at the historic bandshell at Victory Park in Albion, Michigan. Concerts start at 6:00 PM and run until about 7:30 PM. Think Music Think Albion

Old Friends – Simon and Garfunkel Tribute Band – September 10th

Old Friends – Simon & Garfunkel Tribute Band • September 10, 2017, at 6 PM

The 2017 Season is set to end on a high note with Old Friends, a Simon and Garfunkel tribute band.  Old Friends recreates the 1981 free concert in Central Park that was attended by over 500,000 people and is regarded as one of the most memorable concerts in history.  Old Friends includes a nine piece backup band that completes the sound and experience of the 1981 concert in our own community’s “central park”, Victory Park.   One thing that the 1981 concert doesn’t have on Swingin’ at the Shell’s final concert of the 2017 series is the celebration of another great season and the Albion community with free hot dogs for all concert attendees.
