An Army Strong Performance

The music students and teachers of Deer Park High School were a captive audience for a unique recent concert featuring The Volunteers, a U.S. Army rock band from Fort Drum, NY. The band performed a variety of tunes that had everyone off their feet, clapping and singing along.

The talented ensemble – which included string, brass, percussion and vocal musicians – interacted with students throughout their set. The Volunteers are the rock component of the United States Army Field Band. Members described the mission of an Army band, which is to build morale throughout the country and entertain the troops, as well as their experiences traveling around the world and training.  

The United States Army Field Band has long been active in the educational community, and The Volunteers, together since 1981, presented Deer Park students with an educational and entertaining production.
