About the USAF Band of Mid-America

Stationed at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois in the #MetroEast area of St. Louis, Missouri, the Band of Mid-America has a long history of entertaining the American public and promoting esprit de corps within the military. The unit strives to inspire the hearts and minds of our men and women serving around the world and to tell the Air Force story through the universal language of music. Each year, the Band of Mid-America performs for millions of people throughout a ten-state region: Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Tennessee. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming concerts! Visit links under Music Teams to learn more about our musical ensembles.

THE BAND'S MISSION

Through the universal language of music, we HONOR all who have nobly served in the United States Armed Forces by commemorating the contributions of our nation's veterans - past and present - both at home and in deployed locations around the world.

We CONNECT U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense messages, making lasting connections with our audiences. Our community and civic outreach performances serve to instill patriotism, build partnerships, enhance the reputation of the Air Force and the United States, and demonstrate American values to the world.

We INSPIRE diverse audiences by displaying the highest level of professionalism, epitomizing military precision and excellence, telling the Air Force story and presenting the finest in musical culture and entertainment.

We serve as a dynamic element to RECRUIT our nation's best and brightest to serve in the United States Air Force. In partnership with Air Force Recruiting Service, we perform for events that generate interest and enthusiasm for military service.
