  • **COVID-19 NOTICE**

    “**Due to the uncertainty regarding COVID-19, the Air National Guard Band of the West Coast is approving public performances on a limited basis. We are evaluating all requests with the health and safety of both Airmen and audience members in mind**

The Air National Guard Band of the West Coast presents hundreds of performances each year providing music for official military functions and ceremonies as well as civic events and public concerts. If you represent an organization seeking musical support from The Band of the West Coast for your function, or wish to sponsor a public concert, please read the following guidelines and complete the online request form.
The Air National Guard Band of the West Coast may perform for public and civic events if the event is of general interest or benefit to a local, state or national community. However, the Band may not participate in events that are commercially sponsored; are designed to increase business traffic or raise charitable donations; or are associated with a religious or ideological movement, such as a beauty pageant or political gathering.

The Band may perform for a wide variety of public and civic events. However, these performances generally fall into one of two categories listed below.
Public Concerts in a traditional concert hall, outdoor venue or parade must be free and open to the public. However, the Band may perform at fairs, exhibitions and similar events with admission fees if the performance is incidental to the primary event, and no additional fee is charged to hear the Band play.
Patriotic openers are approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length and serve to initiate the formal portion of a military, civic or governmental event. In this setting, the Band may perform a program of military and patriotic selections prior to the formal presentation of the Colors. The musical program must include the national anthem unless the ceremony includes a recital of the Pledge of Allegiance. During patriotic openers, the Band may not provide music for entertainment, such as dancing music, cocktail and dinner music or concert and show music.
The Air National Guard Band of the West Coast also provides music for official active duty, guard and reserve unit military functions. Examples include base open houses, change of command ceremonies, retreats, dinings in/out and picnics. These events promote esprit de corps, troop morale and quality of life initiatives.
