The New Black Eagle Jazz Band

The Music Hall was designed and built in the 1800s to house the second largest pipe organ in the U.S. You've got to see the inside and hear the acoustics of this beautiful building.

The Black Eagles are looking forward to a return performance, and if we and our audience are as lucky as last year we may also enjoy a short - but BIG - tune from that beast of an organ.
