28th Infantry Division Band

North Country residents will have two opportunities to listen to the sounds of a military big band: today at the United Presbyterian Church in the village of Sackets Harbor and Friday at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site. Both performances are free and open to the public.
The 28th Infantry Division Band is commanded by Chief Warrant Officer Two Jeffery A. Jaworowski and is based in Hollidaysburg, Pa. While training at Fort Drum, New York, the band is presenting performances in historic Sackets Harbor, which has a longtime military heritage.
Citizens of Sacket's Harbor presented documented historical accounts of 28th Division Band performances in the village as early as 1926. The citizens are pleased to add another chapter in the history of 28th Band performances in their village.
The band's brass quintet and rock band will perform at the United Presbyterian Church, corner of Broad and Main streets at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The indoor performance at the church is the only auditorium in town and provides an intimate setting for these small ensembles and their audience. This hour-long concert is a prelude to Friday evening's full concert band production.
The expansive grounds at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site will provide a perfect setting for the band's 50 members Friday evening when they perform a 90-minute concert starting at 7 p.m.
