Enjoy an evening of some of the very best music of decades past at the next Allouez Village Band Concert Monday, March 18, at 7 p.m. at the Meyer Theatre, 117 S. Washington St., Green Bay. The full 75-member band will be back to entertain you with music from 1920s to 1990s, plus they’ll have a few surprises along the way. Doors to the Meyer Theatre open at 6 p.m. As always, the concert is free with the support of sponsors which this evening is Schroeder’s Flowers. Donations will be accepted following the concert. “This is really the ‘pop concert to end all pop concerts,’” said Mike Ajango, director of the Allouez Village Band. “Most likely you’ll know all of the songs the band performs this evening. Each one will probably bring back a special memory,” he continued. “Odds are, you’ll walk out of the theatre humming one of your favorites,” Ajango added. The associate director of the Allouez Village Band is Paul Oleksy. Here’s what the Allouez Village Band has in store for the evening: 1920s: “Gershwin!” featuring “Fascinating Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “Somebody Loves Me,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “I Got Rhythm.” 1930s: “Glenn Miller in Concert,” featuring “In the Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” “A String of Pearls,” “Little Brown Jug” and “Pennsylvania 6-5000.” 1940s: “The Homefront: Musical Memories of World War II,” featuring “It’s Been a Long, Long Time,” “Thanks for the Memory,” “Bell Bottom Trousers,” “(They’ll Be Bluebirds) The White Cliffs of Dover,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)” and “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition.” 1950s: Selections from the musical “Singin’ in the Rain” starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. 1960s: “The Big Picture (Epic Movie Themes)” which features music from the movies Lawrence of Arabia, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Doctor Zhivago and Exodus. 1970s: Still going strong today is the jazz rock band Chicago. During “Pop and Rock Legends: Chicago” the band will perform “Make Me Smile,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” “Saturday In the Park” and “25 or 6 to 4.” 1980s: “Eighties Flashback” features “Thriller,” “ Time After Time,” “Eye of the Tiger,” “Up Where We Belong” and “You Give Love a Bad Name.” 1990s: This year of 2019 marks the 25th anniversary since the debut of the original animated film “The Lion King.” The Broadway show that debuted in 1997 is still running in New York 22 years later, and a new live action film “The Lion King” will be released in July 2019 as part of the celebration. “Circle of Life,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” are just three of the selections you’ll hear. “It’s quite a line-up,” said Ajango, “and we can’t wait to share these classics with you at our next concert. Why not invite someone new along to show them what all the fun is about at the Allouez Village Band concerts? Mark your calendar!”

Concert theme: "Once Upon a Time .... I Wore a Younger Man's Clothes" featuring an evening of music through the decades -- 1920s to 1990s!
