MARCHING BANDS

Bethune-Cookman Univ. “Marching Wildcats”

The B-CU Marching Wildcats, known as “The PRIDE”, always strive to bring the finest half-time performances to audiences around the nation! The Marching Wildcats have made appearances in halftime shows for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 2022 Pepsi National Battle of the Bands, many commercials, the movie “Drumline”, and other major sporting events as big as the Super Bowl. They were the focus of the 2018 Netflix show “Marching Orders,” and were one of five HBCU schools selected to perform during “HBCU Week” at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex this October.

Mississippi Valley State “Mean Green Marching Machine”

The MVSU Mean Green Marching Machine is a nationally renowned band and was the first HBCU marching band to be invited to participate in the Rose Bowl Parade! The band made headlines after naming the first woman band director in both MVSU and SWAC history, Dr. Kerry Anne Simon. They have performed in U.S. presidential inaugurations, Chicago Classics, the Indianapolis 500, and many more.
