There are now only 2 ad spaces left in the Harmony & Hope program, at $200 each.
The Chester Brass Band is working with the Dalhousie Health Professionals Chorale to put on its second annual "Harmony & Hope Concert for Cancer Research" benefit at the Saint Andrew's Units Church in Halifax. The music will be top notch and serves a good cause. All proceeds go to the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute's Research Training Program.
You can attend the concert, make a donation on-line or sponsor a "gracenote" in the program (only 14 available for only $50 each). If you are a business, you may also purchase advertising in the program or sponsor the concert outright. There is only 1 Gold Sponsor opening left!
Welcome to the new web site for the Mahone Bay Legion Swing Band. I hope that you like the efforts to provide a more useful site and to take advantage of the very generous opportunity that Weebly offers to non-profit organizations such as ours to create a passable web presence.
The Mahone Bay Legion Swing Band, or MBLSB, is beginning another calendar year full of great music, energetic appearances and community support. If you follow our exploits, you would have attended a dance or two last year, or perhaps caught us in one of many local parades or at the Father Christmas Festival in Mahone Bay. Regardless, we know that we bring a tap to your toe and a smile to your face, whether from awakening memories of past times or just forgetting the events of the past 48 hours!
Swing music has been making a resurgence in the past decade, with dance clubs popping up all over the place, from college campuses to downtown watering holes. Whether you are taking lessons now, or have just known how to jive ever since you were in bobby socks, you will enjoy getting out on the wooden dance floor at the Mahone Bay Legion when we appear. We usually put on 2-3 dances a year in addition to our Summer Bandstand Concerts every Thursday evening in July and August.
