THE ROYAL NETHERLANDS ARMY BAND ‘JOHAN WILLEM FRISO’

The Royal Netherlands Army Band ‘Johan Willem Friso’ (JWF) was established on 1st January 2005 after a reorganisation of military bands, when the four Royal Netherlands Army Bands existing at that time were dissolved. The band consists of 54 members and is based at the Johan Willem Friso Barracks in Assen.

An important part of the band’s activities takes place within the armed forces as a kind of ‘house band’. In addition, the band has representative duties on behalf of the Netherlands armed forces and regularly performs concerts and participates in tattoos at home and abroad. The agenda also includes performances at ceremonies such as changes-of-command, swearing-in ceremonies, the opening of parliament, national remembrance days, veterans’ day or guards of honour during state visits and CD recordings.
