Washington, D.C.
Motorcoach groups traveling to Washington, D.C. can experience military pageantry and inspiration by attending a free concert by The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” It has been the premier music organization of the U.S. Army since 1922, and provides musical support for the leadership of the United States, including all branches of government, and for a wide spectrum of national and international events. It serves in support of soldiers and their families, public diplomacy, community and international relations, recruiting initiatives and music education programs.
Dating back more than 230 years to the Revolutionary War, musicians have served a vital role in the Army, by upholding tradition, entertaining soldiers and serving as the nation’s musical ambassadors.
The U.S. Army Band presents free concerts all year and performs at a few special events in a variety of venues. Each summer from May through early August, bus passengers can attend Twilight Tattoo, an hour-long military pageant featuring soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) and The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” Tour groups will get a glimpse into American history, through live vignettes and entertainment by some of the Military District of Washington’s premier ceremonial assets that include The U.S. Army Band, The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps and The U.S. Army Drill Team.
Twilight Tattoo will run most Wednesdays through August 9 in 2017. Pre-ceremony music begins at 6:30 p.m. and the tattoo starts at 7 p.m. Performances are on Summerall Field on the Fort Myer portion of Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia. The tattoo will be brought indoors in the case of inclement weather. Bleacher seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Most Friday evenings at 8 p.m. through August 25, one of the major performing elements of The U.S. Army Band performs “Sunsets with a Soundtrack,” a concert on the West Steps of the U.S. Capitol. These performances are free and no tickets are required. Note: Weather may affect concerts, so visit usarmyband.com for updates. There will be no performance on Friday, August 18. These concerts are held annually from early June through the end of August. 
The U.S. Army “Pershing’s Own” offers these free concerts each summer, along with other performances at various venues throughout the year. This means that tour planners have several opportunities for their motorcoach groups to experience this military musical pageantry in the inspirational setting of our nation’s capital.
