The Ceremonial Band is the cornerstone of the 1st Marine Division Band. It combines precision drill movements with inspiring music to showcase our proud military heritage. No Marine Corps ceremony would be complete without this traditional musical element. The First Marine Division Ceremonial Band has traveled throughout the United States supporting community events, military ceremonies and parades. They have appeared at such notable events as the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California, as the State Funeral for President Gerald Ford, the 97th and 99th Anniversaries of the Battle of Belleau Wood in France and the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Whether performing for the President of the United States, foreign dignitaries, or local military commands and various communities throughout the United States, the First Marine Division Band represents the very best of Marine Corps music and is the “Pride of the Division”.
