The Strand show will include traditional songs like "America the Beautiful" and "The Star Spangled Banner" and more contemporary numbers including "We’re an American Band" and "Born in the USA."

The Strand Theatre is brining Salute to America, an exciting new musical revue and tribute to both classic and new patriotic musi, to the stage this September.

There is no better way to celebrate our great county than through song and dance. “

The show will run Sept. 7 and Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. Join The Strand on Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. for a special showing of Salute to America to both celebrate and remember the tenacity, will and strength of the American spirit.

You've got to kidding me. It is 2012 and someone is still confused about the meaning of Springsteen's Born in the USA? Love it or hate it or in between -- it is a protest song, not a Lee Greenwood run the flag up and salute number. This is not quite including The Police's Every Breath You Take in a Valentine's Day program but it is close. (If Neil Young's Rockin' in the Free World is also in the mix, I give up.) How about an unabashed pro-freedom tune? Like Charlie Daniels' Long Haired Country Boy. Anything but the same mistakes. Again.
