As we come to the close of Military Appreciation Month, Ajax salutes our nation’s five branches of service, and honors the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Wishing you a reflective Memorial Day from all of Team Ajax.

What an honor to have the 1st Marine Division Band perform “Hop To It!” as part of their annual concert series! SSgt. Alexander Panos, Marine Musician of the Year (2015), conducted his own arrangement of Sarah’s original composition.
Officers of the 1st Marine Division Band presented Sarah and Hannah with a commemorative framed score of “Hop To It!”.
Thanks to SSgt. Panos and CWO3 Stephanie Wire for two memorable evenings.
And thanks to our new patrons for their support!
We are delighted to announce that the 1st Marine Division Band will be performing the Ajax Bound for Glory theme song “Hop To It!” as part of their upcoming concert series, April 4th and 5th at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Bring the whole family along for an uplifting, toe-tapping evening of music – you’ll see why these Marine musicians were our inspiration for Ajax!
Admission is free, though tickets are required (and going fast!) Please visit http://artcenter.org/event/marine-band/2017-04-04/ for more information.
We hope to see you there!
“All musicians have had one: a bad day of practice, where nothing goes right and you just can’t get the notes out. Have you ever wondered why? Simple–the note was stuck!”
