COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Military bands usually conjure images of drummer boys and bugles.

But the United States Army Field Band rocks. And it's coming to Columbia for a performance Thursday night.

Considered the musical ambassadors of the Army, the band has performed for millions of people in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Kuwait and Iraq.

Known as the Volunteers, the band was formed in 1981 and tells the story of the Army through rock, pop, country and patriotic music.

The band performs for free at 7 p.m. Thursday at Finlay Park in downtown Columbia.
