Air Force Big Band with guests US Air Force Pacific Band

The Air Force Big Band is the Air Force's high profile jazz ensemble.

The band's talented musicians were brought together to create a musical powerhouse that is quickly becoming a prominent part of the entertainment landscape.

The band has a strong heritage drawn from "the big band era" of the 1920s to 50s and continues the tradition of the Air Force big bands that rose in popularity during World War II. The ensemble's diverse repertoire includes original compositions and arrangements by band members, traditional big band swing, and contemporary jazz.

With its wide appeal and broad reach into the community, the Air Force Big Band promotes the Air Force and its values when performing at major community festivals, public events, schools, and formal Defence Force functions.

The Australian Air Force band will also be joined by the spectacular US Air Force Pacific Band. The United States Air Force Band of the Pacific-Hawaii is located on the island of Oahu at historic Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (home to the United States Indo-Pacific Command and Pacific Air Forces) and is one of the premier musical units in the Indo-Pacific.

This group have also performed for such dignitaries as Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump; Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann; and the Secretaries of Defense and Secretaries of the Air Force.

Through the power and energy of music, the Band of the Pacific's impressive performances create engaging moments that serve as a demonstration of the excellence displayed by the 46,000 Airmen serving, stationed and deployed, throughout the Indo-Pacific.
