The Ceremonial Marching Band participates in official military ceremonies, military and civilian parades, and patriotic events for the general public.
The band's stirring renditions of military and patriotic music, as well as traditional marches, complements its impressive precision marching style. Among its many appearances, recent highlights include patriotic game openings for the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics, as well as leading the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade - an honor accorded them five times and viewed worldwide by millions: in January of 1997, 2000, 2003, 2017, and most recently in 2022.
As part of the Band of the Golden West, the Ceremonial Band’s mission is to harness musical excellence to HONOR our nation and those who have served, INSPIRE patriotism and resilience in our Airmen, Guardians, and nations’ citizens, and CONNECT the Air Force with the American public and community partners. The excellence demonstrated by the Ceremonial Band reflects the excellence displayed by all Airmen stationed worldwide, whose selfless service and sacrifices ensure the freedoms enjoyed by citizens of the United States of America.
