The Military Band of the North-Western District Headquarters of the National Guard Forces of the Russian Federation was established back in 1926 following a series of military and political reforms.

Throughout its history, the band has undergone an intricate artistic way of growing into a large high-professional music ensemble that now performs onstage of the best concert venues across Saint Petersburg and Leningrad region. It continuously takes part in international music festivals and contests, featuring Vivat, Saint Petersburg, Kazan Fanfares, Victory Fanfares as well as the Amur Waves and the Spasskaya Tower on Sakhalin festivals. Furthermore, the band is the permanent participant of the St. Petersburg Wind Music Seasons. This large international music project allows the military musicians performing along with the world’s best wind performers as well as mastering their skills. Through music, the band aims at reviving patriotic feelings in the hearts of their audiences and the spirit of great victories by Peter the Great, founder of wind bands in Russia.

In 2013 the group became prize-winner of the Soldier Song National Festival held in Sochi.

In 2015 it traveled to Kazakhstan to take part in the Fourth Eskeri Kernei International Military Music Festival.

The band has the honor of being part of the military parade of the St. Petersburg Garrison forces dedicated to the Great Victory.
