The Army Ground Forces Band was organized as the Fourth Infantry Regiment Band on July 21, 1845, in New Orleans. Since 1945, the band has been stationed across the U.S. in Washington, Texas, Maryland, Arkansas and Georgia.

Following World War II, the name of the Fourth Infantry Regiment Band was changed to its current title, the 214th Army Band. In 1985, Secretary of the Army John O. Marsh Jr. conferred upon the unit the distinctive designation The Army Ground Forces Band. Since that time, the band has served as the musical ambassador of the American combat soldier, serving as an outreach asset for the United States Army Forces Command, headquartered at Fort Bragg.
