Three special acts are in the line-up for Beaverdale Farmers Market on Tuesday, August 16.
From 5-6 pm, guest acts from Navy Band Great Lakes will perform as part of Navy Week Des Moines. Performances are in conjunction with the Iowa State Fair, and several ensembles perform in the metro all week. The entire schedule is online here.
In addition to the Brass Ambassadors quintet, the Navy Drill Team will perform its impressive routine. See a sample of a performance at the Smithsonian on YouTube.
Following the Navy Band’s performances, a market favorite rounds out the evening. Junction Jazz Society is a local group that plays big band selections, and features a vocalist on most numbers. This photo is of their performance at the 2015 market.
