Thanks to PNC for making this evening possible!


Established by an Act of Congress in 1798, the United States Marine Band is America’s oldest continuously active professional musical organization. Its mission is unique—to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Free Country, the Marine Band’s contemporary music ensemble, consists of vocalists, a horn section, and rhythm section including piano, guitar, bass, and drums.

Made up of members of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band, Free Country programs feature modern and classic commercial hits including songs from the 1960s to the present from the genres of pop, rock, R&B, and country by such recording artists as Jason Aldean, Lady A, Melissa Etheridge, Tina Turner, and Aretha Franklin. Free Country delivers shows that include humor and reflection while always paying tribute to the men and women in uniform through songs about the American experience.

SARA NIEMIETZ, special vocalist

Many music fans know Sara Niemietz as one of the mainstays of Postmodern Jukebox, but she currently performs with her musical collaborator, W.G. Snuffy Walden. The Emmy Award-winning Walden has served as her producer, mentor, and on-stage cohort for the last decade. Their incredible artistic chemistry prompted Niemietz and Walden to record her new album twentytwenty (2020) live before a Los Angeles audience right before the pandemic lockdown.

Niemietz has performed concerts in over 40 countries and appeared onstage at the Grand Ole Opry and Radio City Music Hall. She has also starred in several shows on Broadway and in L.A. and Chicago venues. Niemietz has been featured in a variety of film and television shows, including Glee and Gilmore Girls, and provided vocals on a number of soundtracks and albums.
