The American Legion Band of Greater Kansas City can provide ensembles of various sizes and musical style to perform for your event or organization. Small chamber ensembles composed of woodwinds, brass or mixed instruments can accomodate smaller and more intimate events and the full ensemble frequently travels outside the Kansas City area by request.

The Band welcomes new members as section numbers vary from season to season. Our members are comprised of musicians with both intermediate and advanced proficiencies. Anyone with a love of music and a desire to perform regularly with fellow musicians in the Kansas City area is welcome to come to a rehearsal to observe and/or sit in and see if the band is a good fit! In addition to many local concerts and parades April through November, the band travels every August to the National American Legion Convention, competing with other American Legion Concert Bands across the country.
