ORIGINAL REPORT, 9:58 AM: If you love marching bands, two things you’ll want to know: First, the All-City Band – which won the grand prize in the West Seattle Grand Parade on Saturday – will be in the Seacrest vicinity this evening for its annual photo shoot, 5:30 pm per its boosters’ Facebook page. The photo above (shared by Toni) is from last year’s session. It’s not an official concert, but if you’re in the area, maybe returning from a Water Taxi commute, you’ll hear music post-photos, since one tipster tells us they’ll be “marching around” as part of it.
Second, this Friday (July 25th) at Southwest Athletic Complex, on the eve of the Seafair Torchlight Parade, ACB and director Marcus Pimpleton again host Band Jam, a chance for some of the parade bands to practice and perform. The formal announcement hasn’t arrived yet but it’s on the ACB calendar and in a comment discussion, we were told it’s set to start around 6:30 pm. Open to the public and free! (The stadium/field is at 2801 SW Thistle, east of Southwest Pool and across the street from Chief Sealth International High School.)
11:37 AM UPDATE: More info just in re: Band Jam – 6:30 pm is the confirmed time, and here are the bands expected:
