The Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces

For over 70 years, the Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces has provided professional musical support for military and Government of Canada events. The band has performed for Royalty, Heads of State, Prime Ministers, and Governors General. It has also performed many public concerts throughout Canada and around the world.

Representing all elements of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Central Band acts as military musical ambassador for Canada. As such, it contributes to Canadian culture both at home and abroad.

Major Dave Shaw is the Commanding Officer and Director of Music for the Central Band.

The Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces performs by kind permission of the Commandant of Canadian Forces Support Unit Ottawa.
