US Navy Band Presents: US Navy Band Cruisers

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

U.S. Navy Band Presents: U.S. Navy Band Cruisers
National Tour

As the U.S. Navy’s premier contemporary entertainment ensemble, the Cruisers feature eight of the Navy’s most dynamic performers. Formed in 1999 as a specialty unit of the United States Navy Band, the Cruisers are under the leadership of drummer, Senior Chief Musician Leon Alexander. The group takes its name from the Navy’s versatile, flexible, multi-missioned ship – the Cruiser – and the band lives up to their namesake by having the capabilities of playing genres of music ranging from jazz & standards, rhythm & blues, classic rock, adult contemporary and pop as well as original material. This elite group has engaged and excited audiences of all ages throughout the U.S. and abroad with world-class musicianship and high energy, fun-filled performances.

Having truly worldwide appeal, they traveled to Oslo in 2004 for the Norwegian Military Tattoo. In addition, they performed in Keflavik, Iceland, in October 1999 for the Naval Air Station’s Navy Birthday Ball. Closer to home, they are in constant demand by the most senior government and military officials. Smaller combinations of the group often perform at the Chief of Naval Operations’ quarters for official receptions. Their show-stopping appearances on Navy Birthday Concerts, Holiday Concerts, National Tours, and Summer Concert Series performances are always a highlight.
