ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The U.S. Air Force Band is coming to Albany to put on a free concert.

They'll be here next weekend for a performance at the Albany Municipal Auditorium. The Air Force band has endeared itself to millions of listeners for more than 60 years. They travel all across the nation, and city officials are excited the band agreed to make a stop in Albany. The free concert won't just be patriotic music.

"Well obviously patriotic is part of it, but they also do a wide array, the sky's the limit they do modern work, they do symphony type work but it's a very talented group and numerous awards. I think it will be a heck of a show," said Wes Smith, Acting Civic Center Director.

The concert is scheduled for January 22nd at the Albany Municipal Auditorium. You don't need a ticket. The doors open at 6:00 PM and the concert begins at 7:00 PM. The auditorium seats 950 and they're expecting a crowd of at least 700.
