Arizona's Army Band to play at ERAU

 The 108th Army Band of the Arizona National Guard, will perform at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Activity Center at 6 p.m. on Aug. 14. The free community concert is hosted by the City of Prescott and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

 The 108th Army Band, Arizona National Guard is based at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix, and is comprised of 32 citizen/soldiers who hold full-time professions as musicians, teachers, students, computer programmers, prison guards, small business owners, and construction and government service workers.

 Organized in 1913, the unit was first drafted into Federal service in 1917. After demobilizing in 1919, it was reorganized as an element of the 45th Division of the 158th Infantry in 1923 and then inducted into Federal service again in May, 1940. The 158th Infantry, also known as the "Bushmasters," received wide acclaim as a combat team during World War II. The unit was reorganized and redesignated as the "108th Army Band" in 1947.

 Since then, the band has earned the reputation and has been officially designated as "Arizona's Own" by performing for every major National Guard Command in Arizona and for numerous concerts and parades in various communities throughout the state.

Currently, "Arizona's Own" 108th Army Band, Arizona National Guard performs under the command of Warrant Officer Steven S. Brining and First Sergeant Therese Kerbey.

 The band performs a variety of musical genres including patriotic, classical and jazz.
