Marine Corps bands are as old as the Corps itself. Drummers and fifers marched with the Continental Marines during the American Revolutionary War. And, they have provided music for every United States President since John Adams. Today, the Marine Corps' musical experience includes the following:
The President's Own: Established in 1798 to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Their calendar includes chamber and symphony performances, live concerts, and VIP events such as state dinners.
Marine Corps Bands: Trained combat warriors, who have marched with commands since the inception of the Corps. They support military ceremonies, official activities and provide security in times of war. From local ceremonies to live community performances, find a field band performance near you.
