The U.S. Air Force Central Command Band, also known as the AFCENT Band or Top Flight, performed a spectacular set of American rock and pop music favorites on the Ooredoo Stage at Mall of Qatar on Friday, August 3, 2018.  The U.S. Embassy is proud to partner with the AFCENT Band to make this performance possible. The AFCENT Band first performed at Mall of Qatar in celebration of the “Discover America Festival” in fall of 2017.

The AFCENT Band performs concerts to show gratitude to Qatar for their continued hospitality to American forces and to foster strong partnerships with the Qatari community. The AFCENT Band also travels around the region to promote troop morale. The AFCENT Band is the first permanently assigned Air Force Band to the Central Command Area of Responsibility. Based in Al Udeid Air Base, the band is comprised of deployed Airmen from active duty, reserve, and Air National Guard bands.  The Band performs a wide variety of musical styles to appeal to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
