In this current enviroment the world once again looks forward to reuniting with each other. We are honored to have military vocalists and instrumentalists from Australia, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom partner with us on this extraordinary project.

We can't wait to get back out around the world and get back to what we do. Our military continues to support the whole of government's efforts during this COVID-19 outbreak around the world. For now, #LetsBandTogether and stay safe.

USAF Band of the Pacific

Our bands love showcasing what our Air Force does and the talents that not only exist in their daily jobs, but also what they bring to the culture of our profession.

The USAF Band of the Pacific would like to recognize the amazing efforts of our United States Air Force maintainers, working hard during these challenging times to keep our planes flying. Our U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) priorities right now are focused on supporting America in this global effort as the Air Force brings back stranded Americans and delivers necessary medical supplies and personnel around the world. A Loadmaster on C-5s and C-130s in his first job, former USAF Band of the Pacific vocalist TSgt Nicholas Daniels, now assigned to the USAF Band of the West in San Antonio, wrote this song as a tribute to the maintainer career field.

We honor these hardworking Airmen who keep our planes always ready to fly, fight and win!

An ensemble from the USAFE Band in Europe was due to travel to Skopje to perform at a public event to celebrate North Macedonia's NATO accession and NATO Day. Though the event was cancelled, COVID-19 could not stop the band from bringing their performance to you.

USAF Band of the Golden West

George Balanchine said, "I don't want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance."

We have musicians who have to play, and composers who have to write!

Our bands are doing their part keeping their mission and readiness up as is the rest of our military! Thanks for your support, and the #AirForceSalutes you in your efforts to curb the COVID-19 virus. Stay safe, be well, get well. #LetsBandTogether

HOT OFF THE PRESS!! The Commanders Jazz Ensemble presents “The Last Dinosaur” written by our very own SrA Ally Albrecht. The tune was written for our March tour that was recently cancelled. For those who were planning to see us play live, here is an 18-video layered performance of the tune. #livefromhome

This tune is dedicated to the Airmen serving around the world who are delivering critical supplies to those in need, providing medical treatment to affected populations, and evacuating Americans who are stranded abroad.

We hope this brings joy to your day and reaffirms to you that we will get through this. #bettertogether

As much as we want to get out and thank you all again, we will continue to reach out in other ways. Our military is working with the whole of government to assist our state and local agencies during this fight, and want to do our part to continue being compliant with our restrictions while still reaching out.

The #AirForceSalutes all of the men and women on the front lines keeping Americans healthy and safe, while risking their own lives caring for the ill.

Need a break from the news for a few hours? Enjoy the passive screen time you allow yourselves to be reminded that our military is still working for you, and even our musicians are offering a little Honor, Inspire and Connect -- and reassurance.

Our good friends over at Ft Meade are doing some FANTASTIC virtual concerts. This week's poster is a little late, but hope to see you on Wednesday and Thursday - we'll be there!

Since 1756, U.S. Army bands have stood side by side with Americans helping inspire them during times of peril. This virtual concert series is a new way to accomplish our mission of connecting the American people to their Army. We Stand Ready to bring you exciting daily performances!

As we all continue to struggle with social distancing and a new normal, we want to ensure you that the mission of the military never stops. We will always continue to defend our country and our country’s interests around the world.

Here we are doing our part to share the message of our uniform and our pledge to our nation... even as we telework! Enjoy these amazing Airmen from Langley AFB!

As the nation faces the challenge of COVID-19, the USAF remains globally engaged in their continued readiness and response. Chief of Staff of the USAF Gen David Goldfein often says, "In every challenge there’s an opportunity." Here at the USAF Heritage of America Band, we remain optimistic and look for the silver lining.

Enjoy a quick Stars and Stripes from our Heartland of America band... https://www.facebook.com/AFHeartlandBand/videos/544626915988073/

If you’ve attended a military band concert, you’ve probably heard John Phillip Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever. There is a famous piccolo solo near the end that is usually played by our piccolo trumpet player in Offutt Brass. Somebody was feeling left out and decided to play it on their instrument. Here’s 30 seconds to brighten your day.

AFCENT Band

One of our Air National Guard bands in Pakistan last week as part of their tour as the AFCENT Band. First AF band visit to Pakistan as they help celebrate 70 years of cooperation with US. Anyway -- from the morning host on Atv Mehekt! ..."It was surprising to see the soft image of the so-called "military boys" you know because we have the hardcore image in our head...

It's why we do it... but thanks!! Great job!

On a recent trip to Pakistan, we had the privilege of sharing music and interacting with children and adults alike. The people of Pakistan welcomed us with open arms and genuine hospitality, and we were grateful for open dialogue that allowed us to appreciate and respect each other’s cultures and further the positive relationship between our two countries.

Many thanks to the members of the Ceremonial Band, In Flight and High Altitude (ANG Band of the Northeast) for your awesome performance tonight at Rose Tree Park in Delaware County, PA. Apologies to High Altitude for walking out after "Little White Church", but that sky was looking ominous and we senior citizens can't sprint to the car like we used to! You guys were nailing the vocals, and the crowd was clearly into it. Great job, everyone! Will definitely try to catch you all again. Please come back to Rose Tree next year and every year!

Saw the United States Air Force Airmen of Note Jazz Band at Milligan College, TN tonight. Awesome concert! Magnificent music and performances. No kneelers were at this concert! Total respect for the flag and for those veterans who have fought and are still fighting for our freedom. Thank you for a wonderful evening! If you have opportunity to see and hear them perform, don't miss the opportunity! They received a standing ovation twice and played the Tennessee Waltz for an encore!
The United State Air Force Band performed at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, Maryland on Veterans Day!! It was one of the most delightful concerts that I have ever attended!! I am proud to say that the band's headquarters is located in my hometown, Washington, D.C.!!!
