The Royal Australian Navy has full-time bands in Sydney and Melbourne, and reserve bands in Brisbane, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth. The RAN Band provides music support for military ceremonies and parades, commemorative services, and community engagement events such as school concerts and music festivals.

Requests for RAN Band support may be requested at any time as events become known by using the form on this web page. Requests may be submitted from within the Australian Defence Force (ADF)/Department of Defence (Defence) or by entities/organisations external to the ADF/Defence.

The Director of Music - Navy is the final authority for all RAN Band tasking. A full list of terms and conditions is available on the last page of the request form.
