William Gabbard

The voice of one of America's great military bands

Voice Description

I serve as narrator/concert moderator for a Washington DC-based military band. Most of my announcing work is in live performances. Occasionally we'll do a gig in a larger, stadium like setting where my delivery is more of a clipped, four-word-at-a-time "ballpark" cadence.

Our concerts offer a wide variety of musical styles, and I'm able to adapt my narrations to fit the character of the music. I write all of my own material.
