The Air Force band is recognised as a world-class military band, with a proud history of service to the Royal Australian Air Force and the Australian community.
The band represents the Air Force at a wide variety of events and in a range of compositions, including:
- ceremonial and concert bands
- show bands
- chamber ensembles
- drum corps.
The band's mission is to enhance the image and culture of the Air Force through music and ceremony. Its appearance at public and private events helps build relationships with the community, and foster partnerships with government organisations and industry partners.
The band also demonstrates the professionalism of the Air Force, and represents the Air Force and Defence at significant cultural events, such as ANZAC Day commemorations, in Australia and overseas.
Air Force Band is under the command of Squadron Leader Daniel Phillips – Director of Music Air Force.
