Forty years later, President Lyndon B.

This event established the Coast Guard Band as one of the five premier service bands in the United States. The duties of the Coast Guard Band have greatly expanded since 1965. Originally a small command band located at the Academy and used primarily for local purposes, today the band routinely tours throughout the United States and has performed in the former Soviet Union and in England. It represents the Coast Guard around the nation and the world, at presidential functions, and for the Secretary of Homeland Security and other cabinet officials on formal and informal occasions. Since its formation in 1925, the Coast Guard Band has developed an international reputation as one of the finest professional concert bands in the world, offering music of great variety and appeal. The band produces recordings and regularly furnishes programs to National Public Radio for broadcast over the entire country.

Concerts have also been broadcast in Australia, Japan and Europe. The Coast Guard Band is headquartered in New London, Connecticut. (See also "US Coast Guard Band") Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
