Royal Australian Navy Band

Military bands have existed as far back as 1600BC and continue to play a strategic role in the military to date through professional mastery of music and ceremonial performance. The history of the Royal Australian Navy Band is rich and long-lasting, and the organisation continues to play an invaluable role in keeping Navy’s image in the public consciousness ashore and at sea, maintaining one of ADF’s most consistent and significant public engagement profiles.

Custodians of naval tradition and ceremony, cultural ambassadors, and drivers of an evolving Australian Navy, RAN Musicians promote awareness in the Australian and international communities of Navy’s critical contribution to the nation. The RAN Band reflects the quality of Navy’s people and the values for which we all aspire - Service, Courage, Respect, Integrity and Excellence.
