Army Bands


The 88th RSC coordinates Army Music support to the 19-State region with the command and control of six Army Bands located in seven different locations.

The Bands provide music throughout the full spectrum of military operations to instill in our Soldiers the will to fight and win, foster the support of our citizens, and promote our national interests at home and abroad.

Even before the U.S. Army was created in 1775, musicians were an integral part of the military. From the signal corps drummers in the Revolutionary War, to the full brass bands of WWII, music has been a critical part of the Army’s success.

88th RSC Army Bands, like all Army Bands, may perform at both military and civilian events which meet regulatory requirements.

Band Performance Requests:
