If you attend a Show Band performance and are expecting to hear marches, you’ll be disappointed. While military bands are normally associated with parades, concerts, and ceremonies, this high energy group taps the hidden talents in the band and plays hits old and new from artists like Carlos Santana, Garth Brooks, Stevie Wonder, Smash Mouth, and Kelly Clarkson. Vocals are the highlight of this ensemble, yet its powerful horn section brings to the stage popular songs from groups like Tower of Power and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Whatever the genre – pop, rock, R&B, country, rap, Latin, metal, hip hop, dance, or local island-flavor music – this group plays something for all ages and musical tastes. The Marines who make up the Show Band have made a name for themselves at local events such as the Ho'olau'lea festival in Waikiki, the Great Aloha Run, and BayFest. So bring your family and friends, and prepare to have a musical blast with the Marine Forces Pacific Show Band!
