Which HBCU has the most epic marching band?

Marching bands are HUGE for me, and I've heard HBCU bands are legendary! Does anyone know which HBCU has the largest or most acclaimed marching band?

You're absolutely right about HBCU marching bands being amazing! While several HBCUs have fantastic marching bands, a couple stand out as being especially renowned. Florida A&M University's "Marching 100" and Southern University's "Human Jukebox" are considered two of the top HBCU marching bands. Both bands are well-known for their captivating performances and have made several high-profile appearances.

Florida A&M's Marching 100 has performed at Super Bowls, Olympics, and even a Presidential Inauguration. Southern University's Human Jukebox has a similarly impressive resume, including performances at various prestigious events. Each of these bands has its own unique style and flair, so it's hard to pick just one as the best.

Of course, there are many other HBCUs with incredible bands, so be sure to check them out when considering which school to attend if having an epic marching band is important to you!
