During the 1986 Presidential Summit with the Soviet Union in Iceland the 215th was the only United States military band to perform for President Reagan. In recent years, "The Governor's Own" received honors for their successful tours of the republic of Jamaica and the country of Greece. In May 1995, the band traveled to The Netherlands to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of WW II. In 1996 and 200 the band traveled to Fort Monroe, VA to back-fill for The United States Continental Army Band. The band has recently returned from Heidelberg, Germany where they back-filled for US Army Band Europe.
Formed in Boston in 1950 with only 14 members, the band moved to Fall River in 1974. Primarily, the band performs across the state in concerts, parades, and state functions. Those who know the 215th know of their professionalism and dedication to their unit, the military, and to the community in which they serve.
