KUVO Studio Club is excited to present the Air Force Academy’s Big Band, the Falconaires on Thursday, August 15 at 4pm. The professional Airmen-musicians in The Falconaires follow in a “long blue line” of talented Air Force Academy bandsmen who are dedicated to serving our great nation and representing the young men and women at the academy training to be officers of character that will lead our Air Force. It is also our distinct privilege to support our veterans and all men and women currently serving around the globe, protecting the freedoms we all enjoy.

It is because of these selfless Americans that we are able to share the music and remarkable talents of the Falconaires. The versatility and professionalism of this unique ensemble reflects the great diversity and ingenuity that makes our air force the greatest air, space and cyberspace force the world has ever known. The Air Force Academy Band’s Falconaires play a major role in cultivating our national heritage through America’s only indigenous musical genre, jazz!
