Scout band to perform
By Joe Ayers
The East Bay Scout Band is part of Boy Scouts of America. The co-ed group is for youth 14 to 21 years old. They are sponsored by the American Legion, Veteran's of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veteran's, and other Veteran's groups. The group is youth led, and their officers plan and organize their activities.
The band plays big band jazz, patriotic, and Christmas music. Member's attend schools from all around Fremont and Newark. The bands director is Joe Ayers, a music teacher from Fremont. The band is always looking for more opportunities to perform for non-profit groups and public events.
