WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - The Air Force Reserve Command Band performed its last Independence Day Concert Monday night in Warner Robins before the unit is dismantled.
"We were talking about that in line," says Susan Quenga. "How we're going to miss--especially the Christmas program that we truly enjoyed going to as a family. We also enjoy their September concerts in front of the museum (of Aviation). It was just a time to go enjoy being together, enjoy their music. We've never had a bad concert."
The band did go out on a good note. It was joined by Angie Johnson from season 2 of NBC's 'The Voice' and country music star Josh Turner.
"I'm here to see Josh Turner," says Victoria Gonzalez.
"Long black train," says Keith Holt. "Just that voice he's got."
Despite all the buzz around the celebrities in attendance, fans say it's important to remember the real reason we celebrate the 4th of July.
"It's a time to celebrate with family, just a foundation of our country," says Nick Spletstoser. "It took a lot of brave people a couple hundred years ago to take a stand and it's nice to be able to recognize that and celebrate that as a nation every year."
"It's about our independence," says Silvino Quenga. "How we came together as a nation with a different attitude, different mindset towards government in the world."
"There's a lot of people out there right now fighting for what we're doing here today," says Gonzalez. "And although they can't be with us here today this is just a way to say we are thinking of you. We're here for you."
Officials believe there were at least 20,000 people at Monday night's event, which concluded with a post-concert fireworks show.
