Description:
The United States Navy Band, based at the historic Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., has served the nation as the official musical organization of the United States Navy since 1925. The United States Navy Band serves the ceremonial needs at the seat of government, performing at presidential inaugurations, state arrival ceremonies, state funerals, state dinners, and other significant events.

The United States Navy Band performs all styles of music — from ceremonial pieces such as "ruffles and flourishes" to classical, rock, jazz and country hits. The musical organization continues a proud tradition of professionalism and service long associated with the United States Navy.

Organization and personnel

There are also several chamber music groups. The multiple ensembles help to meet the public demand for different types of music as well as the needs of Navy recruiting.

The United States Navy Band is composed of 172 enlisted musicians and four officers, under the direction of Capt. Brian O. Walden.
