tabPublic Performances and Civic Events 
The United States Air Force Band of the West may perform for public and civic events if the event is of general interest or benefit to a local, state or national community.  However, the Band of the West may not participate in events that are commercially sponsored; are designed to increase business traffic or raise charitable donations; or are associated with a religious or ideological gathering. 

A religious facility is an authorized site for a public concert when the event is of community-wide interest, non-sectarian, and broadly promoted. Air Force Band concerts must not be part of a religious service.  An Air Force Band performance in a religious facility does not imply federal  endorsement of any particular religion or ideology.

The Band of the West may perform for a wide variety of public and civic events.  However, these performances generally fall into one of two categories.

Patriotic openers, approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length, serve to initiate the formal portion of a military, civic or governmental event.  In this setting, the Band of the West may perform a program of military and patriotic selections prior to the formal presentation of the Colors.  The musical program must include the national anthem unless the ceremony includes a recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.  During patriotic openers, the Band of the West may not provide music for entertainment, such as dancing music, cocktail and dinner music or concert and show music.  

Public concerts in a traditional concert hall, outdoor venue or parade must be free and open to the public.  However, the Band of the West may perform at fairs, exhibitions and similar events with admisssion fees if the performance is incidental to the primary event, and no additional fee is charged to hear the Band of the West play.
