Memorial Day Weekend Information

Posted By Keith Heim on May 25, 2017

Dress: For all three performances this weekend we will be wearing white shirt, black pants/skirt, and black shoes. If it is warm out, short sleeves are fine.

Weather: In case of rain, we still need everyone to arrive at each location by call time. In the event we are still able to perform, we will need everyone present. If we are made aware of a cancellation in time to communicate that to the band, we will make every effort to do so. You may sign up for text message alerts/reminders by sending the message   @nashccband   to the phone number  81010 . You should get a reply where you can enter a name for your registration. We will use that as a way to communicate information quickly if needed. We will also use email, the band Twitter account @nashccband, and our Facebook group to communicate in the event we need to get info out to the band quickly.
