The 2014 Disneyland All-American College Band started in park performances on Thursday June 19th. They are scheduled to perform Tuesday through Saturday (they are off Sunday and Mondays) until mid-August.
- 1:50pm – Disney California Adventure – Hollywood Backlot Stage
This is traditionally their Jazz set and usually features the band sitting on the stage and performing. Throughout the summer they have guest performers join them at this set. The music here usually changes the most with the band playing a wider assortment of music vs the other sets which are the same.
