About the performers: The USO Show Troupe is part of an entertainment tradition that goes back more than 70 years to its beginnings in the muddy camp shows of the South Pacific. Today, the pride and passion that fueled that early music lives on through the USO Show Troupe. Performing live annually for more than 600,000 troops and family members worldwide and nationally televised audiences, the USO Show Troupe presents top of the line entertainment with performers possessing extensive Broadway, off-Broadway, film and TV credits.
Made up of active members of the Army Reserves, the 94th Army Band will perform two fantastic sets: one of traditional military concert band arrangements, and another as a pop-rock band performing Top 10 hit songs from the '80s to today. Get ready to sing along to all your favorites!
