MARCHING BANDS

Grambling State University “World Famed Tiger Marching Band”

The GSU Tiger marching band has always been known to give the audience a show to remember! The band has performed in more Super Bowl halftime shows than any other HBCU, including Super Bowls I and II. The Tigers have also performed in the inaugural parade for U.S. Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, a TV commercial with Coca-Cola, the award-winning Denzel Washington film, “The Great Debaters”, and many more!

Alabama A&M University “Marching Maroon & White" Band

The AAMU Marching Maroon & White (MMW) band is a high-stepping, dynamic marching band that amazes audiences no matter the location! They’ve performed at the Rose Bowl Parade, the Independence Day parade in Washington D.C., the National Battle of the Bands (NBOTB) in NRG Stadium, and many other national events. The MMW band was recently selected to perform in this year's 97th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade for the first time in AAMU’s history! Out of hundreds of applicants, the band was just one of nine selected for the parade.
