Gateway Brass is a brass quintet with percussion which showcases military professionalism at Department of Defense ceremonies and entertaining public functions throughout the Gulf Coast region on behalf of the Air Force. The virtuoso group of active duty airman musicians perform musical styles spanning five centuries.

The ensemble is based at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. All enlisted airmen must first pass through JBSA-Lackland, making it known as “The Gateway to the Air Force”, which became the inspiration for the group’s name.
