"Oregon's Own" 234th Army Band


234th Army Band Mission:

To provide music throughout the full spectrum of military operations, to instill in our forces the will to fight and win, to foster the support of our citizens, and to promote our national interests at home and abroad.

Serving the State of Oregon, our Nation, and our local communities since 1919, the Citizen-Soldiers of the 234th Army Band provide music for all occasions. The Band is comprised of 40 citizen-soldiers making up The Empire Builders (full concert band), a marching band, and four Musical Performance Teams (MPTs). These small, versatile ensembles include 45 Away (rock band), Foxhole (country band), No Brass No Ammo (brass band), and Cascade Brass (brass quintet).
