The U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West’s Mobility group dropped by base Dec. 10 to get Team Edwards into the holiday swing.

The band visited Air Force Research Laboratory Detachment 7 in the morning, before heading to Air Force Test Center Headquarters, the Base Exchange, Bldg. 3000, 412th Medical Group and the Benefield Anechoic Facility.

The band has made it an annual tradition to provide one of its ensembles to visit Edwards in December.

According to their website, Mobility is an upbeat group of talented musicians bringing you rock, jazz and blues favorites, new and old. As a subdivision of the United States Air Force Band of the Golden West, Mobility travels the West Coast bringing civilians and military personnel entertainment and American pride through music.

Mobility continues its long tradition of providing as wide-ranging a musical format as possible to meet the desires of its listeners. Its tailored, fast-paced variety shows are presented at events ranging from official military functions, to community relations concerts, fairs and public school concerts throughout the Western United States. This small ensemble’s versatility is unmatched. The group’s unique blend of music also includes patriotic selections for special occasions. They are based out of Travis Air Force Base, Calif.
