IRRIGON — Blues, jazz, rock, swing and funk are featured during an upcoming performance by Brass Fire.

The 10-piece regional horn band will take the stage Monday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m. at Irrigon Marina Park. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held at Stokes Landing Senior Center.

As part of the Music in the Parks summer concert series, admission is free. People are invited to pack a picnic to enjoy during the performance.

In addition to a full rhythm section made up of a pianist, a guitarist, a drummer and a bass guitarist, there are performers on trumpets, saxophones and trombone. Band members also step up with stylistic vocals. Brass Fire performers include those who have played in military bands, aboard cruise ships, with professional touring bands and as school music teachers.

This is the last concert of the 2018 Music in the Parks season, which alternated weekly between Irrigon and Boardman marina parks. For more information, contact Jackie McCauley at utility.clerk@cityofboardman.com, 541-720-1289 or 541-481-9252. For more about Brass Fire, search Facebook.
