Travelers at DC’s Union Station got an early Christmas present on December 3 when a flash mob from the U.S. Air Force Band performed. Beginning with one solo drummer, musicians from the band emerged from hiding dressed in World War II-era uniforms to perform a lively musical arrangement of “Jingle Bells” and “Auld Lang Syne.”

Headquartered at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, DC, The United States Air Force Band is the premier musical organization of the Air Force, with 184 professional military musicians and support personnel. The performing group comprises four of the six ensembles that make up The U.S. Air Force Band, including the Airmen of Note, the Air Force Strings, the Singing Sergeants, and the Concert Band.

    In rememberance of My Mother, where I learned to LOVE the BIG BAND ERA. Especially Glenn Miller and his U.S. AIR FORCE BAND. And happens to be my favorite Big Band Orchestera – Band. I grew up with this kind of music, on radio, all through the mid and late 1940’s & early 1950’s. This brought back some Wonderful Memories of long ago Days Gone By. Thank You to this band, singers and dancers I really, really enjoyed this video. Wish I could have been there to hear & see it all. The days of Innocence, and the GREATEST GENERATION.
