Each band is staffed with the finest musicians, each bringing their unique talents from the country’s top universities, conservatories, and professional ensembles. You will have the opportunity to play in various ensembles offered in each band, including concert band, brass and woodwind quintet, jazz combo, rock and pop group or New Orleans style brass band.

U.S. ARMY PREMIER BANDS

THE FINEST SOLDIER-MUSICIANS THE ARMY HAS TO OFFER

The premier bands have unique missions and highly specialized performing ensembles. They regularly provide musical support for high profile national events, perform for visiting dignitaries and heads of state, and tour nationally to support the nation's interests.
 

Auditions are highly competitive and held only for specific vacancies as they occur. Current Army Musicians are welcome and encouraged to audition for premier band vacancies. Many premier band members began their Army careers in Regional, Army Reserve, or National Guard Bands. Visit their websites for current vacancies and upcoming performances.

U.S. ARMY Regional BANDS

PURSUE YOUR PASSION - SERVE YOUR COUNTRY

The Army has 20 Regional Bands stationed around the country and the world. The mission of each band varies, but they often tour regionally and nationally to perform for the public during parades, concerts and other events. Regional bands also perform military ceremonies and concerts for Soldiers on post and provide educational outreach for their communities.
 
While these bands can perform as a full concert band or as a marching band, they emphasize highly-capable small ensembles to support a wide range of audiences and venues. Ensembles include rock band, brass and woodwind quintets, salsa band, jazz combo, brass band and more. Our international locations provide a unique opportunity for band members to visit other countries, learn new cultures and serve as musical ambassadors.
