Jason Kelce with Avalon Strng Band
  • Contrary to popular belief, the band was actually named after a popular cigarette, not the Jersey Shore town

  • Avalon did not take part in the 1982 Philadelphia Mummers Parade and was reorganized on March 23, that same year

  • In 1993, the band traveled to Washington D.C. to participate in the Presidential Inauguration Parade

  • The band has had made several global appearances, making stops in Ireland and Italy

  • In 2018, the band was featured on Fox Good Day, and Comcast SportsNet

  • Remember that suit Philadelphia Eagles center, Jason Kelce wore during his epic Super Bowl speech? That was a part of Avalon's 2008 theme entiled "Ire-land of Leprechauns"

  • Pictured above at the 2018 Mummers Mardi Gras Parade in Manayunk, is the newest member of our baritone saxophone section
