1RAR Band

1RAR Band

Comprised of 22 specialist musicians, Townsville’s own Band of the First Battalion (1RAR Band) provides music support to the Australian Army’s 3rd Brigade, other Defence organisations, and the broader community of North Queensland. Covering tasks as diverse as ceremonial activities, Defence charity events, and professional concerts they also work with Forces Entertainment to bring homegrown music to our deployed troops. With almost as many ensemble combinations as musicians, their professionalism and flexibility consistently demonstrate that they are ‘Instrumental in Defence’.
