Idaho’s 25th Army Band Early Independence Day Show

June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the Ponderosa Center in welcoming the 25th Army Band to McCall, ID! To kick off the summer event season and an early Independence Day celebration, Idaho’s 25th Army Band will be playing Sunday evening at the Terrace.

This is a FREE family friendly event open to the public! Please plan to pack in your own lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic dinners. Well behaved doges are welcome but must remain on a leash at all times inside the Ponderosa Center Terrace.

The 25th Army Band is the only military band in Idaho and plays 30 to 40 events every year, such as the 2019 Governor Inauguration and Inaugural Ball, the Idaho Steelheads professional hockey games, rodeos, parades and community events.

Among the band’s 32 Soldier musicians are high school music teachers, an attorney, an environmental engineer, federal technicians serving in the Idaho National Guard and former law enforcement personnel. Most of the band personnel play more than one instrument. While most of the band members live in Idaho, others are from the neighboring states of Montana, Oregon and Washington. The current Band Commander is Warrant Officer Shad Frazier from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

The 25th Army Band comprises a variety of groups within the band: the concert band, the Jazz Militia, the marching band and many small combo groups playing Dixieland jazz, brass ensemble, woodwind quintet, rock, country and western music.

The band is headquartered on Gowen Field in Boise, Idaho. The unit was organized in 1926 under the 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team and located in Caldwell.
