Since its inception on July 11, 1955 The Air Force Band of the Rockies Marching Band has proudly served the Air Force and its visitors.

In addition to these types of marches, Footlifters! also includes other songs that have been played faithfully over the years, whether on the parade field or on America's streets. The album includes such classics as The Washington Post, King Cotton, and The Stars and Stripes Forever. Performed by a band over seventy pieces strong, Footlifters! is an exciting collection sure to both inspire and motivate.
