The Army Band

The Army Band
The Australian Army Band (AAB) is an Army unit consisting of 11 individual bands; five full-time and six part-time which are located in each capital city as well as the regional centres of Wagga Wagga, Townsville, and Newcastle.

The Australian Army Band’s mission is to enhance the public image of the Army through community engagement, and to maintain morale and Esprit de Corps by providing musical support and entertainment to Army activities in barracks, on exercises, and on deployment. Its operational role is to entertain troops deployed overseas in an operational environment and as a part of this role the band also performs for the local community in those areas.

As an integral part of Army’s community engagement program, the band also contributes substantially to the civilian community by providing support to charitable and philanthropic events and school music education programs.
