Thursday evening, July 10, the Bitterroot Community Band played a variety of tunes at the bandshell in Hamilton's Claudia Driscoll Park.

The band performs there almost every other week during the summer. However, their next performance will be their annual "strawberry shortcake" fundraiser at the Daly Mansion grounds July 24. That show will have gates opening early for picnics with music starting at 7 p.m.

The 8 p.m. concerts at the bandshell, however, are free. On weeks that the community band doesn't play, other groups take the stage - 5 Valley Accordians, Bitterroot Jazz Band and others.
