In celebration of Independence Day, the waterfront Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels is welcoming back The Shades of Blue Orchestra for a live performance at its July 2 Big Band Night. Two vocalists will join the 18-piece Shades of Blue Orchestra as they perform from the historic Tolchester Beach Bandstand. For safety reasons, non-service dogs need to be kept home during CBMM festivals, including Big Band Night. Leashed dogs are only permitted on the museum’s campus during regular operating hours.
Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, 213 N. Talbot Street, St. Michaels
CBMM’s exhibits and campus will close early at 5 p.m. for Big Band Night, and re-open at 6 p.m. for guests to enter the campus for the event.
