Founded in 1907 as a gathering of Salvation Army employees, thus the label "Staff Band," the men and women of the Chicago Staff Band share at least three things in common:

  • A love and desire to serve God.

  • Commitment to the membership and ministry of their respective Salvation Army worship center.

  • Quality musical talent that is willingly shared on a volunteer, non-professional basis. 


With the support of your generous donations and the many people who have given before, the ministry of the Chicago Staff Band continues. As the band travels throughout the midwestern United States, sharing concerts, clinics, and recordings, your gift helps the band have a positive impact on the lives of all that hear them.

Take a moment to consider the varying levels of membership giving. Make a tax-deductible gift today and thank you for supporting "the band with a sacred message."
