Big Band Night


In celebration of Independence Day, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum welcomes The Shades of Blue Orchestra for a live performance at its Saturday, July 1st Big Band Night.

The St. Michaels fireworks are scheduled to launch after dusk that evening, with CBMM’s waterfront campus a great venue from which guests can enjoy the fireworks.

The rain date for the concert and fireworks is Sunday, July 2nd.

Two vocalists will join the 18-piece Shades of Blue Orchestra as they perform from the historic Tolchester Beach Bandstand. The orchestra is set to begin at 7 p.m., with the public invited to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets for an evening of music, dancing, and fireworks along the Miles River. Food, ice cream, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase during the event.

Admission is $6 for CBMM members and $10 for non-members, with children ages 5 and under free.

After 8:45 p.m. admission will be reduced to $2 for those watching the fireworks only. Proceeds benefit the children and adults served by CBMM’s education, exhibition, and restoration programs.
