As the Army has transformed to meet the complexities of modern warfare, so too Army Bands have evolved and adopted to meet our musical mission.  While the 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band is able to perform as a full band for large ceremonies, it can also now be broken down into smaller music performance teams, or MPTs.

The 10th Mountain Division Band can function in a variety of different configurations (MPTs) to meet our musical mission, from large ceremonies to smaller events. See Support Capabilities for further information.

Each of our small ensembles features four to six Soldiers playing a variety of genres in support of ceremonies, concerts, and educational outreach opportunities. Their musical selections range from patriotic standards all the way to covers of the most current pop hits. Performances can be adapted to best suit your needs. Their small size and minimal equipment allows them to perform in more intimate settings, such as military balls and social events, as well as at ceremonies, school concerts, and formal events.


 Vocalists wb.jpg






Each Army band has one or more vocalists assigned to its ranks. Solo vocalists are available to sing the national anthem with no other musical or audio reinforcement, and they round our some of our other ensembles such as the Rock Band. With several vocalists currently available, the 10th Mountain Division Band has revived its Barbershop Quarter, "The Singing Tenth!"


 Bugler wb cr.jpg






Bugle calls play a critical part in military tradition. A bugler will be assigned to sound commands during official military ceremonies, or to sound the sacred Taps call at military funerals and memorial ceremonies.
