High energy is an understatement for the U.S. Pacific Fleet’s Big Wave Brass Band, in town this week for the Juneau Jazz and Classics spring concert series

On Juneau afternoon this Tuesday, some of the band members will be on the show. They will talk about their lives as professional touring musicians, who serve their country by using their talents to perform at military and diplomatic functions, as well as at community events like the Juneau Maritime Festival and Juneau Jazz and Classics.

Also, on this program:

  • The Hope Endowment Fund, a partnership between the Juneau Community Foundation and the City and Borough of Juneau. How the fund helps some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
  • A bird banding demonstration by the Juneau Audubon Society, as part of World Migratory Bird Day.
  • Comedian David Sedaris returns to Juneau to perform at a KTOO benefit.
