The Escanaba City Band is comprised of real band instruments...you know tuba, trombone, trumpet, etc. It's kind of rare to see this kind of band host events this day in age, it was like a blast from the past! Very cool, I would definitely recommend going! The band plays on Wednesday nights in summer and various other events and holidays.

It just does not get any better than this! Beautiful park, Lake Michigan, City Band playing Sousa marches, and some of the best fireworks that I have seen (short of Wash DC on the bi-centennial), being shot off over the water. I would not trade the Escanaba experience for any place on earth. THIS is what America is suppose to... More

Love the performances of this band every Wed. night during the summer at the beautiful bandshell and park. Usually get a picnic dinner together with a blanket and enjoy a very pleasant night.

What a deal! During the sumer months, free concerts have been available on Monday and Wednesday evenings. The city band plays different styles of music each Wednesday to a crowd of people who either sit on the provided seating or on a blanket on the grass. It is an activity you should attempt to see when visiting.

I love listening to the Escanaba City Band. Particularly when they play out at the state park at Fayette. They are very good and I also like listening to them when they play in Ludington Park.

Love going to the park during the summer for the midweek concerts. 4th of July is especially great listening to the patriotic tunes. They play a varied selection of tunes. There is seating available at the band shell or you can bring your own. Maybe you just like to sit in the grass. Any way you like it the music... More
