United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own”
Since 1922, the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” has maintained a tradition of excellence as the premier musical organization of the U.S. Army and has played an important role in events of national and international significance.
The Band was founded by Army Chief of Staff General of the Armies John J. “Black Jack” Pershing to emulate European military bands he heard during World War I.
