Babahatchie is a unique Native American name for the Emory River running through Harriman, meaning “babbling waters.” For 20 years or so, the band of that same name has performed for residents and visitors with popular classics, marches, brass band music, and show tunes.

Sunday’s concert will begin at 3:00pm at David Webb Riverfront Park in Harriman. Musical selections will include some well-known movie soundtracks so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

The Harriman Lions Club will be there slicing up sweet watermelon for all concert goers to enjoy. Don’t miss out on one of the most fun events of the summer! This is your last chance to hear the Babahatchie Community Band at the gazebo this year.

Interested in joining the band? They’re always happy to accept new members! The full group, usually about 30 members strong, was formed by Dr. Joseph (Joe) Williams and holds weekly rehearsals, which are open to the public and held in the Harriman High School band room most any Monday evening around 8 PM.
