A component of the US Air Force Band of the Golden West, The Commanders Jazz Ensemble carries on the American musical tradition of the great big bands, yet offers a lot beyond the big band sounds. This energetic group of highly-trained professional musicians, formed from 18 active duty Airmen, delivers the full gamut of jazz music - traditional jazz, cool, bop, swing, Broadway favorites, and patriotic music. The Commanders offers an entertaining show you won't soon forget!
A typical evening with The Commanders Jazz Ensemble might include favorites from Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie plus the sounds of today's modern jazz groups, delivered by the group's enchantingly talented vocalist. Their renditions of hot jazz feature rousing improvised solos from every instrument in the group.
The United States Air Force Band of the Golden West is dedicated to engaging communities and building partnerships, telling the Air Force story, honoring military heritage, enhancing morale for uniformed service members, and recruiting the finest Americans to serve in the United States Air Force.
