Mission Statement

AFCENT Band ShieldThe U.S. Air Forces Central Command Band is the first permanently assigned Air Force Band to the Central Command Area of Responsibility. Based in Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar,  the band is comprised of deployed Airmen from active duty, Reserve and Air National Guard bands.

appeal to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Top Flight


Top Flight is the Rock/Pop showcase group for United States Air Force Central Command.  Its music stretches from the Top 40, pop, dance & country hits of today to popular rock-n-roll classics.  Whether for a military function, community outreach concert or a school assembly, Top Flight inspires audiences with its exciting, high-energy presentation and amazing musicianship, honors our expeditionary Airmen serving around the globe and uses music to connect with the international community and build relationships with our coalition partner nations.  Members of Top Flight are deployed in support of Operations Inherent Resolve and Resolute Support.  Top Flight  honorably represents more than 317,000 Air Force professionals around the world who diligently watch over the skies protecting and defending all those who cherish freedom. We hope you afford us the opportunity to share the messages of excellence, sacrifice, courage and commitment of our brave men and women…the deployed Airmen of the United States Air Force.
