Commandant's Combo

The Commandant's Combo has become one of the most active groups the Naval Academy Band offers. Originally created to support official events for the Commandant of Midshipmen, this versatile group is also called upon to perform for traditional Navy functions, including Navy and Marine Corps Balls, command social functions, public concerts, and educational workshops.

Led by Senior Chief Musician Blake Cramer, the four-piece ensemble's trademark performances feature modern arrangements of well-known patriotic melodies. The group celebrates its members' diverse musical backgrounds, creating exciting arrangements from a palette of contemporary harmonies and global rhythms. The Commandant's Combo is popular with Midshipmen, military, and civilian audiences alike, with its dynamic stage presence and explosive synergy.
