The 234th Army Band, nicknamed “Oregon’s Own” is the Oregon National Guard’s ambassadors to the State of Oregon. Organized in 1919, the band has seen duty in the Pacific during WWII and was awarded several citations including the Philippine Presidential Unit Citation for service from October 17, 1944 to July 4, 1945. The band tours every summer as part of its Annual Training, performing concerts for the citizens of Oregon and beyond. “Oregon’s Own” was reorganized to the 234th Army Band on May 17, 1947 and has been proudly serving Oregon for over 100 years as one of the top bands in the nation.The band, under the direction of CW4 Ashley Alexander and SSG James Cameron, will perform a variety of music from classical to contemporary, intermixed with patriotic songs and traditional marches. This family-friendly show will also feature vocalists SPC Kimberly Nagorska and SFC Duane Reno.Based in Clackamas, the 234th Army Band is made up of 40 Soldiers from Oregon and Southwest Washington. In addition to saluting military Servicemembers past and present, the band aims to entertain all members of the community as a show of appreciation for the shared sacrifice families of Oregon National Guard Service Members have endured in support of military operations around the globe.
