The Utah National Guard 23rd Army Band—established in 1924—travels throughout the state, performing for official functions and community projects. The band is capable of fielding seven separate musical performance teams. Each year the band performs across the state of Utah, giving clinics and concerts for schools; performing at civic functions; marching in parades; and providing music for military dances, changes of command and other ceremonies.

In 1992 the band was invited by the mayor of St. Petersburg, Russia, and the U.S., State Department to perform with the Leningrad Military District Headquarters Band. The band performed at numerous venues during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City and in 2004 travelled to Germany to support the U. S. Army Europe Band and Chorus. In 2010 the band performed on tour in the Kingdom of Morocco in Northern Africa. The 23rd Army Band has also performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Utah Symphony, and the U.S. Army Field Band.

In addition to being a group of musicians, the 23rd Army Band is a group of U.S. Army Soldiers. They maintain readiness with a full training schedule including an annual weapons qualification, a semiannual physical training test, basic Soldier training, and training in many other skills required of Soldiers and members of the Utah National Guard. During the day, these Citizen-Soldiers work in other roles such as accountants, engineers, contractors, software engineers, teachers, and parents. Many also perform in other musical organizations around the state.
