In 2012, the U.S. Navy Band performed at the Virginia International Tattoo Festival in Norfolk, Virginia. We stayed in Norfolk for a few days, and it was quite an experience musically. It was also interesting to walk around and visit this city with a great naval history. Here is the finale of that festival:
