SANATOGA PA – As one of its performance numbers was introduced Sunday (Aug. 6, 2017) during the Lower Pottsgrove Summer Concert Series in Sanatoga Park, the Pottsgrove Community Band explained the tune it was about to play, “Riffin’ The Blues,” might normally be found on any program conducted by a high school band. The real reason for offering it was to give several band members a chance to show off their musical chops with a little improvisation.
The beat and melody pleased the crowd, and the players’ professionalism delighted listeners.
