We’re gearing up for the 2016 Amway Family Fireworks at Ah Nab Awen Park on July 2nd! Leading up to the event, we want to give you a glimpse into some of the great performers you’ll be seeing throughout the evening leading up to the fireworks.

This time we’re highlighting the 566 Air National Guard Band of the Midwest!

The Air National Guard Band of the Midwest based out of Peoria, Ill. will be performing a free concert at Ah ­Nab­ Awen Park, next to the Ford Presidential Library and Museum in Grand Rapids on Saturday, July 2 at 6:00 p.m..

This concert is free to the public, and will feature the Concert Band, Harmony in Blue jazz ensemble, and Permanent Party rock band, performing popular, patriotic and big band favorites.

Air National Guard Bands support the global Air Force mission in war and peace by preserving national heritage, providing professional musical products and services for official military, recruiting, and community relations events.

The group will also be performing on Sunday, July 3 at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans at 2 p.m. That concert is also free to the public.
