Since Nov. 10, 1775 precision and adaptability have been the hallmarks of all Marine Corps units. Marine Corps Band New Orleans is not different. The band is dedicated to excellence and committed to providing America with a glimpse of the Marine Corps’ proficiency and versatility.
Marine Corps Band New Orleans was established Oct. 1, 1978. Under the operational control of the Commanding General, Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North, the unit is comprised of active duty Marines stationed aboard the Marine Corps Support Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Each year the musicians of the band travel throughout the United States entertaining over 6 million people as they perform in more than 280 concerts, parades, and ceremonies. The members of the band are basically trained riflemen, fulfill all annual Marine Corps physical and combat fitness requirements, participate in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and, when directed by the Commanding General, serve as part of a security element in conflicts and exercises around the globe.
With an authorized strength of 50 active duty Marines, the band has performed in many recognized events including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (Houston, Texas), the Fiesta Days Celebration (San Antonio, Texas), the Pro Football Hall of Fame Parade and Enshrinement Ceremony (Canton, Ohio), Fleet Week New York and most recently Super Bowl XLVII (New Orleans.)
The band is proud to be located in the historically and culturally significant city of New Orleans. They frequently perform in a variety of local events and, when they travel throughout the country, they take every opportunity to share the spirit of the Big Easy with their audiences.
