The group has played throughout the Upper Peninsula this week and will end its U.P. tour in Munising at Binsfeld Bayshore Park on Monday evening at 6:30. During the free event, the 126th will perform patriotic concert band selections and feature several small group ensembles that include “Minutemen Brass,” “No Brass,” and “Live Fire.” Above, a trumpeter in the 126th Army Band of the Michigan National Guard plays a Felonious Munk tune.
