Supporting the total Air Force and Air National Guard mission in war and peace, the Air National Guard Band of the South inspires patriotism and fosters a deep appreciation of the rich history and legacy of the Air Force. This support is accomplished, mainly, through professional performances by some of the nation’s best musicians. The band performs as a concert band, ceremonial band, “Space A” and “Sound Barrier” popular music ensembles, “Smooth Groove” jazz/big band ensemble, brass quintets, and as a small jazz combo.

The Band of the South’s mission is two-fold: first, to enhance and lift the morale and espirit de corps of our fellow airmen stationed either in the United States or abroad; second, to increase the public’s understanding of the importance of air power, the missions and programs of the Air Force and Air National Guard and the bravery, sacrifice and dedication of airmen across the globe. While performing these missions, members of the Band of the South have performed in almost every state in the union and have been deployed to Germany, Kandahar, Afghanistan, and more. The Air National Guard Band of the South is stationed at McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base in Knoxville, Tenn.
