Guam - 6-piece Alaska Brass treated Chamorro Village patrons to a special performance this afternoon. The group is based out of Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage, Alaska.
Tech Sergeant John Rider leads the full-time band, which has been spent the last few days doing outreach in the region. He told KUAM News, "Part of our mission is to go out and support all of the Pacific Region, so we're here initially to come out to Andersen Air Force Base and play some gigs out here, some holiday spirit, some cheer which is different for us because it's freezing cold back in Alaska right now."
In addition to performing patriotic songs and the National Anthem, Alaska Brass plays Disney songs for their children's shows and Christmas songs during their holiday shows.
