Requesting the Parris Island Marine Band
The Parris Island Marine Band may be requested by the public to perform at community events such as patriotic ceremonies, festivals and parades, if eligible under military regulations. Military units may also request the band for ceremonial support.
Military units who would like to request the band, call 843-228-2015 or 843-228-2178 or email ParrisIslandMarineBand@usmc.mil for information including a request template.
For events within 100 miles driving distance of Parris Island, download the request form here. E-mail the completed request form to ParrisIslandMarineBand@usmc.mil.
For events greater than 100 miles driving distance from Parris Island, submit the request through Headquarters Marine Corps' Community Relations Branch.
Participation in public events will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine their eligibility per government and military regulations, as well as the availability of the band. Please note that participation in political, fundraising, religious, private and commercial events is typically prohibited.
The band will not commit more than 90 days in advance of any scheduled event. Requests for the band should be submitted approximately 90 days prior to the event, but must be submitted no less than 30 days prior to the event. Requests sent for events scheduled more than 90 days in the future will be kept on file and reviewed when eligible.
Requests will be considered as quickly as possible. In the event that a request has not been approved or denied within 10 business days after submission, please call the band at 843-228-2015.
Potential event sponsors may download a band sponsor package for information about the band, including history, marketing info and band member biographies.
