During a concert you’re likely to hear the music of jazz legends Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and Count Basie as well as contemporary big band leaders and composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Maria Schneider.

Featuring outstanding soloists as well as a superb vocalist, The Commanders is an ensemble capable of delivering a powerful musical performance.

Touring the western states of Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Washington, the US Air Force Band of the Golden West has performed for thousands of listeners in live concerts and millions worldwide via its numerous recordings and television and radio broadcasts.

The only active-duty Air Force band west of the Rockies, the Band of the Golden West is dedicated to using the power of music to inspire our Air Force members and the great nation we serve, producing innovative musical programs and products, and communicating Air Force excellence.
