The Admiralty Navy Band of Russia is a Russian military band based in Saint Petersburg. It was founded early in the 18th century about the same time as the Russian navy itself. The band's conductor is Commander Alexei Karabanov.

The band has toured Europe and performed for visiting heads of state. It has also had a number of guest conductors, boith military and civilian.
