Travelers at DC’s Union Station got an early Christmas present on December 3 when a flash mob from the U.S. Air Force Band performed. Beginning with one solo drummer, musicians from the band emerged from hiding dressed in World War II-era uniforms to perform a lively musical arrangement of “Jingle Bells” and “Auld Lang Syne.”

Headquartered at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, DC, The United States Air Force Band is the premier musical organization of the Air Force, with 184 professional military musicians and support personnel. The performing group comprises four of the six ensembles that make up The U.S. Air Force Band, including the Airmen of Note, the Air Force Strings, the Singing Sergeants, and the Concert Band.
