MoBand Turns 100

MoBand Turns 100
By Chris Murphy

For as long as we can remember, these amazing summer Thursday nights with MoBand and 3,000 of your friends in the Mancini Bowl bandshell at Graceada park, with food, drink, wine, and fun sounds have made the perfect evening; a hall of fame slice of Modestocana. This 100-year season begins with a MoBand 100 Year exhibit at the McHenry Museum running until mid-July. This will be a beautiful evening as the ribbon is cut on the 100 Years of MoBand history exhibit at the Museum that will be on display through the middle of July.

June and July in Modesto’s Graceada Park, enjoy the sights and sounds of the 100th Year Modesto Band of Stanislaus County’s Concerts in the Park. The blankets are out early, the wine is ready, the picnics are made and the music starts at 8 pm, for six Thursdays and thanks to MoBand Sponsors and the Night at the Bowl fundraiser (see below) these Concerts in the Park are FREE. Plan your summer around this and invite your friends to truly experience Modesto.
