The Band schedules one national tour each year and is excited to return to the Southeast for the first time as a full band since 2008. Since the Band rotates through five regional divisions of the United States in turn, each concert tour represents a rare and unmissable opportunity to see the full 55-member Coast Guard Band in person.

Established in 1925, the United States Coast Guard Band is the premier band representing the U.S. Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security and is the Coast Guard’s only professional musical ensemble. The Band serves the country and the American people through its mission of promoting public goodwill toward the U.S. Coast Guard and our country, preserving and honoring the heritage, traditions, and history of the Coast Guard and our nation, enhancing pride within our service, supporting Coast Guard recruiting activities, and performing for official functions.
