Music plays an important role in the Army. Members of Army bands are involved in the vibrant tradition of performing at Army ceremonies, parades, concerts, festivals, dances and many other events. Musicians perform in a variety of ensembles ranging from ceremonial band to jazz band to small ensembles, playing all styles of music.
Request the Band
To request the band for your function, please fill out the DD 2536 form located on the Contact Us page and email to SFC Lisa Bigge at Lisa.M.Bigge.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand that although we would love to be able to honor all performance requests, we receive far more requests per year than we could possibly fulfill.
Want to Join?
The Army band program is open to talented musicians who are qualified to enlist in the Army and can pass a prearranged audition. But more importantly, the program is for anyone who has a passion for his or her instrument and a love for music. For more information visit our Join Us page.
