Serving as a member of the Coast Guard Band, those qualified as Musicians inspire Coast Guard personnel across the globe.
Performing across the full spectrum of Coast Guard operations, Musicians enable the Coast Guard Band to celebrate the proud heritage and important mission of America’s oldest multi-mission maritime force. The Coast Guard Band represents the entire service at White House ceremonies, for the Secretary of Transportation and other cabinet officials, and around the world at formal and informal events in support of Coast Guard operations.
