Australian Army Band Adelaide
The Australian Army Band Adelaide remains the primary musical capability for Army in South Australia and provides support to Defence units and the regional community. Capabilities include a big band, jazz ensemble, brass quintet, fanfare team, rock band and a marching band for ceremonial occasions.
The band was formed in 1950 to serve the growing needs of the military and was known then as the Central Command Band. In 1973 the band changed to a concert band and was renamed The Band of the Fourth Military District. The band then changed to its current title in 1993 and became a part time ensemble in 1994.
The band is a 40 piece entertainment ensemble that performs everything from jazz to classical and Broadway musicals to rock. The band prides itself on performing concert programmes that appeal to all age groups and all tastes of music, setting it apart from other musical ensembles. This distinguished group of musicians maintain a high standard of performance at official and public events in both Adelaide and regional South Australia.
