The Town of Occoquan is very pleased to welcome the District of Columbia National Guard this summer with a special presentation by The 257th Army Band, the Band of the Nation’s Capital at River Mill Park!
The Band of the Nation’s Capital is a unit of the District of Columbia Army National Guard. The band boasts a proud lineage going back to the organizational lineage and association with the legendary Corcoran Cadets, the DC militia that inspired John Philip Sousa to compose his march of the same name. Noteworthy performances include musical support for the Inauguration of President Obama, performances in Greece, Jamaica, the US Virgin Islands and Panama, consecutive appearances at the Great American Brass Band Festival and concert tours throughout New England, Texas and the Mid-Atlantic. Although centrally located among the finest military bands in the world, The 257th Army Band is officially recognized as “The Band of the Nation’s Capital”.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair, pick up a boxed lunch in town or pack your own snack, and head down to River Mill Park for this very special presentation by one of the finest military bands in the nation, located at one of the most scenic spots in the county.
