The Australian Army Band on-board HMAS Canberra has been setting the dance floor alight throughout their 3 month deployment during Indo-Pacific Endeavour 2019. The task force recently visited Nha Trang, Vietnam and the band played on a street square in the middle of the city to a delighted audience. Tourists and locals alike crowded together to see the band light up the stage and represent all that's good about Australia. The band has entertained foreign dignitaries, school children and defence personnel with their performances enabling government and community engagement that builds on Australia’s relationships. Their performances have also received wide praise from senior leadership with the deputy chief of Army attending the event along with the Australian Defence Attaché, head of mission and the ambassador to Vietnam. On the conclusion of the event the band received flowers from the audience, a loud round of applause and then headed back to Canberra to play another day.
