Marcus Shelby Orchestra Live

Join us for an evening of music and commemoration as we salute the Port Chicago Sailors.

Renowned bassist, composer, and bandleader Marcus Shelby is joined by his orchestra to perform PORT CHICAGO, a musical suite inspired by the black sailors of Port Chicago Naval Magazine. The suite evokes the World War 2 era when swing, ballads, and blues music were the soundtrack of American life.

Don’t miss this unforgettable evening as we reflect on 80 years of Port Chicago and the enduring legacy of the Port Chicago Sailors.
