It’s MoBand time!

By Chris Murphy

The time has come Modesto! Summer is here and it is time for the biggest party all summer long. Picture this; a big brass band, a bandshell, a park, with food, drink, wine, and fun sounds like the perfect evening and best of all, new seating in Mancini Bowl thanks to a great fundraising effort by MoBand, CANA, Clampers, local donors and the teamwork of the City of Modesto. Add to this 3,000 of your best friends, blankets, wine, and picnic baskets and you have a hall of fame slice of Americana, or Modestocana as we like to say. Yes friends, MoBand season is here.

MoBand has been going strong since 1919 and the 2023 theme is Rock On!
Music starts at 8:00 pm Get your blankets out early. Don’t snooze.
