HAGERSTOWN -- Sunday's performance by the Hagerstown Municipal Band was an extension of the Independence Day celebration, but it also took some attendees back in time.
The band's annual July Fourth concert at the Peter Buys Band Shell in City Park Sunday night featured patriotic songs, including military marches, to get everyone in the holiday mood.
Some of the people in attendance said the show was like living in the 1950s.
"It's like being in a movie setting," said one woman in attendance.
The woman, who declined to give her name, said she grew up in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., and used to come to Hagerstown often to shop.
The woman now lives in Florida and was back in town reminiscing.
"It's all-American," she said of the show.
Jane Amero of Falling Waters, W.Va., said she only misses a few performances by the band each year. She said she loves the group because its music reminds her of pops concerts she saw in Boston in the 1940s and '50s.
