MARCHING BANDS

Florida A&M “Marching 100”

FAMU’s “incomparable” Marching 100, often referred to as one of the most imitated bands in the world, has been credited with over 30 innovations that have become standard practice for many high school & collegiate marching band programs throughout the nation. The band has performed at several Super Bowls, the Olympics, the Grammys, inaugural parades for Presidents Clinton and Obama, and most recently at Paris Fashion Week, in the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2023 (SS23) Fashion show.

Grambling State University “World Famed Tiger Marching Band”

The GSU Tiger marching band has provided its unforgettable entertainment around the world, performing in numerous Super Bowls, presidential inaugurations for George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, world-famous parades, movies, television commercials, and on recordings. This past summer, they were one of eight HBCU marching bands to compete in the 2022 Pepsi National Battle of the Bands!

Having made it to the FCS Playoffs last season, and having defeated the GSU Tigers 26-3 in their last gameday matchup, the Rattlers are hopeful they can come out on top once again and make it to win the SWAC Eastern Division title.
