The Arsenal Brass is a vibrant, energetic group mostly comprised of military musicians playing horns and rhythm section instruments. They are steeped in traditional New Orleans music yet are equally popular for their renditions of pop, rock, and Motown, all with that special brass band flare.

Earning international critical acclaim for their music, the U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band have performed for many dignitaries including foreign heads of state as well as U. S. Presidents. They currently call Joint Base Langley-Eustis their home.  

This program is funded in part by the City of Newport News and the Newport News Arts Commission.
