"Pride in Service" has been the theme for Navy Band Great Lakes for more than a century. From 1911, when the band first formed, to 1917, when Lieutenant Commander John Philip Sousa served as Bandmaster, to today, our music represents the pride and professionalism that is synonymous with the United States Navy. As the Navy’s musical “Ambassador to the Midwest,” Navy Band Great Lakes supports outreach in an eleven state area, stretching from Michigan to Missouri, North Dakota to Kansas, and every Midwestern state in between. With an average of 400 performances a year, Navy Band Great Lakes is proud to be a part of the Leavenworth Veterans Day Parade.
Drum Major: Musician First Class Jesse Carmona
