Established in 1918, the Quantico Marine Corps Band is one of the oldest professional musical ensembles in the Marine Corps. The band is comprised of a ceremonial band and concert band, and maintains a number of small ensembles, including brass quintet, woodwind quintet, rock band, brass band, and jazz combo. The band’s mission is to provide musical support that will encourage community relations, enhance troop morale, and promote the Marine Corps recruiting program through its demanding performance schedule. The band has performed at many recognized civilian events; such as the Super Bowl XLI Pregame Show, the 9/11 Memorials at Carnegie Hall, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Columbus Day Parade in New York City, the Nationale Taptoe Military Tattoo in the Netherlands, and the Hamina Tattoo International Military Musical Festival in Hamina, Finland. The band has been an annual participant in the Virginia International Tattoo since 2003, entertaining audiences with classic to contemporary pieces each year.
