Naval Academy Band

Marching Band

For more than 150 years, the United States Naval Academy Marching Band has maintained a tradition of musical excellence and professionalism. Originally manned by a walrus-mustachioed fifer and a drummer, the band performs a variety of engagements throughout the year and is led by Head Drum Major Chief Musician Jim Hurd and Assistant Drum Major Musician First Class Sam Chin.

The Marching Band can be seen leading the Brigade of Midshipmen in dress parades on historic Worden Field, marching Midshipmen to victory on the gridiron, escorting a fallen shipmate to his or her final resting place, and representing the entire Navy during street parades. The band is perhaps most well-known for its participation in the annual Army-Navy football game, one of the most enduring rivalries in collegiate sports, which is viewed by millions around the world.

“The Navy’s Oldest and Finest” prides itself on supporting the Brigade of Midshipmen, the Naval Academy, and the United States Navy with the highest level of military bearing and esprit de corps.
