Scrap Metal – 34th Army Band to Perform at Iowa Wesleyan College

Written by Theresa Rose on January 30, 2015

Iowa Wesleyan College will host Scrap – Metal 34th Army Band on their campus on February 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel.
Formed in 2012, Scrap Metal is one of many ensembles that comprise the Iowa National Guard’s 34th Army Band, and is a prime example of the changing nature of today’s military bands. Scrap Metal is a modern New Orleans style Brass Band that plays a large variety of music, from current pop tunes, to 80s and 90s rock, blues, funk, Ska and riot jazz – there’s really no limit to what they’ll attempt. While the members of Scrap Metal are part-time soldiers and musicians, their approach to music and level of professionalism is unmatched. They pride themselves on their eclectic music selection, improvisation, and most importantly their fun-loving, high-energy performance. It should be noted that they claim no pride whatsoever in their dance skills.
This event is free and open to public. For more information contact Kat Niemann, Director of Student Engagement at or 319-385-6262.
