The Royal Danish Navy Band is the Navy’s best Orchestra – and the only one!

The evolution from a traditional marching band to a brass inspired orchestra started around 1964, which means that the orchestra now has over 50 years of experience.

Until 2002, the orchestra consisted of 9 permanent employed musicians supplemented by a number of conscripts. Today there are 35 on permanent contracts until the age of 35. Virtually every weekend is used to practice playing and singing, marching and attending tatooos at the old naval base at Holmen.
