LIVING HISTORY CREW DRILL Saturday, March 23 at 8 a.m. Come see history come to life with our WWII reenactors during their March drill. Interact with historical WWII reenactors aboard the USS ALABAMA and USS DRUM. These historical reenactors, dressed in WWII period Navy uniforms, demonstrate what life aboard ship was like during wartime. They share stories from our original crewmen, conduct weapons briefings, and demonstrate drills while aboard ship. Be sure to grab a spot on the main deck of the USS ALABAMA at 1:00 p.m. when “Call to Battle Stations” is sounded. Enemy aircraft will fly over attacking the ship, and the crewmen will fire back to defend her with their guns blazing! Spectators will be able to take in the whole experience while the crew fires the ship’s 20mm and 40mm guns. Planes fly based on mechanics and weather conditions that day.

TOWN MOUNTAIN at Vinyl Music Hall, Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m. From Facebook, “Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, Town Mountain is the sum of all its vast and intricate influences — this bastion of alt-country rebellion and honky-tonk attitude pushed through the hardscrabble Southern Appalachian lens of its origin.” I have Town Mountain on a playlist with Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, and Billy Strings and I am excited to see them! Tickets are available here: https://wl.seetickets.us/event/town-mountain/584099?afflky=VinylMusicHall
