Royal Barbados Police Band

The Royal Barbados Police Band in Barbados was founded in 1889 with a complement of 19 serving policemen. Known as one of the oldest bands in the world today, this internationally acclaimed band is well respected all over the world and plays a mixture of calypso, salsa and light jazz with performances that are well attended all over the island.


The very first tour headed to St. Lucia in 1945 and since then, the band has toured extensively overseas. In 1962, history was made when the Royal Barbados Police Force became the first ever military band to broadcast via satelite while on the Ed Sullivan Show. Other performances were made at the Edinburgh Tattoo in Scotland, Disney World in Florida, Music of the Nations in Germany, Earls Court in London, Radio City in the USA, UK, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean.
