U.S. Navy Band Sailors Dazzle With Their ”Jersey Boys” Medley
In 2014, the U.S. Navy Band took to the stage at the Concerts on the Avenue series at the U.S. Navy Memorial. The following performance features the Sea Chanters who dazzled the audience — and internet viewers alike — with a show-stopping medley of songs from the hit Broadway show, “Jersey Boys.” The medley features classic songs from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, including “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” and “Sherry Baby.” As you’re about to find out, it’s impossible not to smile while watching.
Navy Band musicians include First Class Michael A. Webb, Chief Musician Michael H. Belinkie, First Class Benjamin L. Bransford, III, First Class William Edwards, III, and Chief Musician Adam C. Tyler. It’s amazing to know the Navy is not only full of brave and heroic men and woman, but that it’s also ripe with talent and showmanship.
According to the United States Navy Band, “Our 11 Navy bands perform 6,500 times a year, around the country and around the world. Here in the U.S., our goal is to use music to connect Americans to their Navy. Right now, only 1.7 percent of Americans have served or are serving in the Navy, out of the less than 7% of Americans who have served in any branch. It’s important to us that people understand what the Navy does and why it’s important, as well as highlighting the great work Sailors are doing each and every day. Our performances abroad are all about using music to help build and maintain relationships with our partner nations.”
