The USMMA Regimental Band has represented the Academy at all Presidential Inauguration Parades, and during a normal school year will perform on and off campus at various ceremonies and events such as the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. In the past, the band has performed at the Miss America Pageant, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Cotton Bowl Halftime Show on New Year’s Day, and countless other national events. In 1994, a 35-piece ensemble boarded the ocean-liner Queen Elizabeth 2 and traveled across the Atlantic to Normandy, France for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day, while entertaining the WWII veterans on board. In June, 2000, the band flew to New Orleans and represented the Academy and U.S. Merchant Marine at the Opening Ceremonies of the D-Day Museum.
Even though the Band’s membership changes each Trimester as students go to sea, the students in the Regimental Band are typically assigned to Band Company for their four years at KP.
