Chicago Staff Band

In America’s heartland, the Chicago Staff Band has come to represent the best in banding traditions of The Salvation Army. It is composed of members of Salvation Army congregations from throughout metropolitan Chicago, dedicated to Christian service and musical excellence. 

Founded in 1907 as a gathering of Salvation Army employees, thus the label “staff band,” the men and women of the band represent a variety of occupations and studies, including a number of Salvation Army employees and officers. Chicago Staff Band members share at least three things in common: a love and desire to serve God, commitment to the membership and ministry of their respective Salvation Army worship center, and quality musical talent that is willingly shared on a volunteer, non-professional basis. 

The band travels monthly throughout the USA Midwest and has conducted concert tours of the United Kingdom, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Philippines, Chile, Jamaica, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, South Korea, New Zealand, and Nigeria.

The Chicago Staff Band’s attractive and innovative programming is designed to inspire as well as entertain. The band strives to live up to what was many years ago described by a Chicago newsman as “the band with a sacred message.”
