The Pacific Fleet Ceremonial Band and Parade Band are large traditional “military band” units of the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band. As musical representatives of Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, these ensembles perform more than 600 engagements annually throughout Hawaii and the entire Indo-Asia-Pacific Area of Responsibility (AOR). These 30-member ensembles perform conventional march music and patriotic favorites by composers such as John Phillip Sousa, Karl King, and Irving Berlin.
The U.S. Pacific Fleet Band performs for military functions including change of command ceremonies, retirement ceremonies, and commissioning and decommissioning of ships and military units. The band is also available for public performances including parades, patriotic events, and other civic functions.
