Some very special scouts made an appearance in Charleston Friday night.
The Boy Scout Jamboree Band took the stage at Live on the Levee.
65 members of the band opened the night and brought the audience to their feet.
The band had only been performing together for a couple of days.
Performers ranged in age from 16 to 26 and came from all over the country.
"I'm from New York, and we don't have the same musical ideas or styles as someone from Texas,” James Gates said. “To bring it together is really interesting, like the whole melting pot."
The performance is part of the scouts' community service project in West Virginia.
