The Australian Army Band-Tasmania’s multi-talented musicians enables them to perform as a concert band, marching band, traditional big band, contemporary rock band, woodwind quintet, and fanfare team.
Navy Rock Band
The Tasmanian detachment of the Royal Australian Navy Band primarily performs as a rock group; but it also maintains a jazz ensemble and some limited ceremonial capability.
The detachment performs throughout Tasmania and assists other detachments for major events; including ship departure ceremonies, ship commissioning ceremonies, and Graduation Parades.
The detachment rehearses weekly at Anglesea Barracks in Hobart and is constantly looking for new musicians.
