The Royal Australian Navy Band is a prestigious unit of the Australian Defence Force, and is one of Australia’s premier military ensembles.
The Royal Australian Navy has employed musicians in its service since 1913. During World War II musicians served with distinction in all theatres of war.
Our musicians also saw action in the Korean War, Malaysian Confrontation and the Vietnam War. Since then, the Royal Australian Navy Band
has performed for global audiences and continued to build its reputation ashore and afloat.
Today, the men and women of the Royal Australian Navy Band deploy throughout Australia in support of naval ceremonial, musical and public relations interests.
Its musicians are highly skilled and versatile; able to perform traditional ceremonial and concert music, jazz, pop, rock, swing and classical.
The Admirals Own Big Band features 18 of the Navy’s top jazz and big band musicians performing in a range of styles from the traditional swing era through to contemporary big band music. The Admirals Own Big Band have performed with many artists including James Morrison, Don Burrows, Guy Sebastian and Katie Noonan and have performed for audiences throughout Australia at events such as the Thredbo Jazz Festival, the National Jazz Festival in Canberra, Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival and ‘Jazz in the Vines’ Hunter Valley.
