Join us at "Eden Night Live" on Friday, September 30, 2016

The Castro Valley Community Band is pleased to be on the program for Eden Night Live on Friday evening, September 30, 2016. We take the stage at around 6:30 p.m.

Although we've only had  few rehearsals this season, we've got a lively set of music prepared for you, including some marches, medleys of rock and pop songs, and a thrilling symphonic arrangement. (We've also got one surprise up our sleeves.)

Eden Night Live, billed as "A social space for healthy entertainment, community engagement, and business development," is held at 20100 Mission Boulevard (corner of Mattox Road) in Hayward. Admission is free. Food trucks will sell tasty meals, and plenty of fun activities (other than listening to the band) await you. We hope to see you there.
