U.S. Navy Band's 'Country Current' to perform at Eisenhower Auditorium

Country Current, the United States Navy Band's premier country music ensemble, will present a free concert at Eisenhower Auditorium on the University Park campus at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 10. The seven-member group was formed in 1973 and quickly established itself in all aspects of country and bluegrass music. The group is under the direction of Keith M. Arneson, banjoist and chief musician.

Touring the country each year in support of Navy recruiting, they have performed with such artists as Boots Randolph, Charlie Daniels, Vince Gill, and David Ball. Country Current performed at the “Branson Cares-Help Start the Healing” tribute to the citizens of Oklahoma City and at the Glen Campbell Goodtime Theatre in Branson, Missouri. Other credits include the Grand Ole Opry, Wheeling Jamboree, and the Academy of Country Music awards show.

Tickets are required for this performance, and can be acquired at no charge from the Eisenhower Auditorium box office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, or by calling 814-863-0255.
