The Band of the Army Air Corps was formed in 1993 from the former Royal Artillery Alanbrooke Band. In April 2014 it reformed as a specialist contemporary band bringing with it a change of capability. This change provides the ability to perform the popular music styles more in keeping with the tastes of the Army's younger soldiers and officers. By doing this, the band has been able to reach a much wider audience; both military and civilian alike, enjoying successful receptions around the United Kingdom and abroad. The band is now located at Colchester Garrison.
