WHO WE ARE
The Arizona Band Flotilla is the second U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary band. Chartered in January 2015, we support the U.S. Coast Guard and Auxiliary in boosting public awareness of safe boating practices. In addition, we honor veterans from all branches; provide dignity at memorial services for Auxiliarists and veterans; instill pride and patriotism in the community; and assist in recruiting, fellowship and retention efforts.
We play at official military ceremonies, veteran functions and non-political civic events as an appreciation to all veterans! Performing year-round and rehearsing most Tuesday evenings at the Friendship Village in Tempe, AZ. The musicians in our band are from all walks of life that enjoy performing music as well as serving their country. We are always on the lookout for new members.
