West Point Band

The West Point Band is the Army's oldest active duty band, founded on the beautiful and historic grounds of the United States Military Academy in 1817. The band traces its heritage to fifers and drummers who were part of Continental Army units at West Point during the time of the American Revolution. Officially established on June 8, 1817, the West Point Band celebrated its bicentennial last year. Although many changes have occurred over the years, music continues to be an aspect of daily life for the cadets and Soldiers at the academy. Today, the band continues to inspire and motivate the next generation of the Army’s leaders, as well as serving as musical ambassadors for the Army to the nation.
