About Us About Us

The Air National Guard Band of the West Coast supports the global Air Force, including Air National Guard missions, by fostering patriotism and providing musical services for the military community as well as the general public. We perform for audiences all over the world, although we primarily serve communities throughout California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.  
tabAbout the Band 
The Air National Guard Band of the West Coast traces its history to October, 1941, with the formation of the 62nd Army Air Force Band in Augusta, Georgia.

The band is composed of citizen-airmen whose civilian occupations range from professional musicians and music educators to computer programmers, accountants, engineers, and law enforcement officers.

Under the command of Major Vu Nguyen, band members meet two days a month to rehearse and perform. They also participate in an annual two-week summer tour. During the annual tour, the band functions as an active-duty band, rehearsing, traveling, and performing. Past tours have included performances in Alaska, Australia, British Columbia, the Dominican Republic, Hawaii, New York, Florida, and throughout the state of California. 

As musical ambassador, the Air National Guard Band of the West Coast is proud to represent the State of California, the Air National Guard, and the United States Air Force.
