As the official jazz band of US Army Band, and one of the few remaining professional groups of its kind, the Blues' present-day mission is to promote America's art form: jazz. The Blues pay tribute to the big bands of yesterday by performing the music made popular by such greats as Ellington, Basie, Miller and Herman. The Blues have performed at international jazz festivals throughout the world, and have also performed at the White House and State Department functions and events.
