Navy Band in the Latham Garden

Navy U.S. Fleet Forces Band Performance

October 15, 2021 the Navy U.S. Fleet Forces Band performed for free on the South Lawn of Tryon Palace. This stop was in conjunction with their performance in downtown New Bern during MumFeast, as well as their top down the coast for their final stop in Columbia, South Carolina for Navy Week.

The ensemble played hits from the 80’s to now, featuring hits by Bruce Springsteen, The Greatest Showman, and Journey. The ensemble consisted of a vocalist, 2 keyboard players–one which juggled between keyboard, sax, tambourine and harmonies–a guitar player, a bass player and drummer.

The evening provided the perfect atmosphere for live music with the Governor’s Palace as a backdrop for the band with the Trent river behind the crowd and the perfect weather as the sun set.
