FORT RUCKER, Ala. (May 17, 2012) -- Entertainment fit for the whole Family can seem rare these days, but Fort Rucker's own 98th Army "Silver Wings" Band is sure to fit the bill for people of all ages at this season's third performance of Music Under the Alabama Stars concert series tonight.
The toe-tapping begins when the band starts swingin' to "Sing, Sing, Sing" on Howze Field at 6:30 p.m.
Maj. Gen. Anthony G. Crutchfield, Fort Rucker and U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence commanding general, invites Soldiers, Families and civilians out for a relaxing evening as a show of appreciation for their dedication to the Aviation mission.
"Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, coolers and (leashed) pets on out for a truly uplifting Family experience," Crutchfield said.
And the band is gearing up to make it a memorable evening, said Staff Sgt. Phillip Andrew, band operations non-commissioned officer in charge.
"This performance will feature our 17-piece jazz ensemble playing big band hits and some modern jazz including 'All of Me,' 'It Don't Mean a Thing,' and 'Sweet Georgia Brown,'" Andrew said.
The community is invited to bring their Families and join the fun at Howze Field and maybe even start a new Family tradition.
