The Recreation Centers of Sun City West is pleased to welcome back Surprise Pops for a Veterans Day concert on Friday, Nov. 10, at the Palm Ridge Rec Center.
The show begins at 11 a.m. with doors opening at 10:30. Tickets are free and since the Surprise Pops “plays for food,” the band ask that the audience bring a non-perishable food donation to be delivered to local food banks. Tickets will be available beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the R.H. Johnson Box Office. They are available for Sun City West residents only (limit two per rec card).
The Surprise Pops were formed 35 years ago when a handful of musicians gathered in Clancy Wolf’s garage to enjoy themselves making band music. It was recreation, fun and fellowship. Today the band has grown to about 100 members and plays free concerts to thousands of West Valley audiences every season. The band still keeps the tradition of not charging for a concert.
The Surprise Pops will honor Veterans with a patriotic concert featuring an array of American Military and marching music.
