The Singapore Armed Forces Central Band was formed during the merger of the tri-service bands in 1994 to serve as the premier band of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). Staffed by professional musicians, the SAF Central Band continues to provide top-notch musical support to major State and SAF functions, parades and ceremonies.


The SAF Central Band delivers performances in various capacities. Other than being a wind orchestra, the band also plays the role of a marching display band and a ceremonial band. The band often reconfigures itself into other smaller groups, including chamber and jazz ensembles. As the premier band of the SAF, the SAF Central Band is often seen at the Istana, performing for Presidential events and State Welcome Ceremonies for foreign dignitaries.
