CLEVELAND - If you are a rock musician and you are thinking about maybe joining a branch of the US Military then perhaps you might visit a Navy recruiter in town this week for Navy week.
The nine member band is stationed in Chicago and is in Cleveland helping to celebrate the Bicentennial of the 1812 commemoration.
Liberty Call, one of 17 performing ensembles of Navy Bands Great Lakes really know how to rock and roll, from all the oldies but goodies to the latest pop tunes as well as all the traditional navy march music. If you don' t know what a Navy classic tune is then you must remember that the Navy band got its start from none other than John Phillip Sousa, the man that brought us all the marching music classics such as "Stars and Stripes Forever" and the "Liberty Bell March."
"Liberty Call" plays those songs for sure but really excels at songs from James Brown, CCR and the Beastie Boys.
"Pride in service" is the Navy Band's motto and they are showing it off in Cleveland.
You can see them this week at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica Friday night, as well as Riverside Park in Chagrin Falls late Saturday afternoon
