The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Rock Band
Out of Uniform was started in August of 2007 and is composed of 6 members. Just like any other rock band we have your essential Power trio, plus keys and a synth player to fill out the sound. Of course the band is run a little differently than a civilian rock band in the fact that we also have an NCOIC (Noncommissioned Officer In Charge) who is in charge of the musical direction of the band. The music we play is not only limited to rock though. We also play R & B, latin and country. In formal capacities we also can break down into a Jazz Combo and a funk trio.

Since August, the band has been training for our Wartime mission and rehearsing the songs that we would perform for the troops. We also spent a lot of time playing in the local bars and clubs around Fort Campbell, KY to work on our performance. Since we've been in Afghanistan we've played 5 shows and are about to go on tour around Afghanistan to hit some other Forward Operating Bases.
When we're not rocking out for the troops we are responsible for providing the Forced Protection for the entire base.
