Officially established on June 8, 1817, the West Point Band is the oldest continuously serving Army band, and the oldest unit at West Point. The band traces its history back to a single drummer and fifer left to maintain the tradition of military music at West Point after the Revolutionary War. Over the next two centuries, the band evolved into one of the most capable and versatile professional performing groups in the world. Musicians in the band are drawn from the finest music schools and performing groups in the nation and are not cadets at West Point. Today, the band consists of multiple elements that perform styles ranging from traditional drum and fife music to the pop, country, and rock hits of today. Its standards of excellence, like those of the Academy, continue to be a source of pride to the Army and the nation.
