It's official marching band season and I love the clips from the first week of the action.

Recently, there was a battle of the bands event in Houston where 8 HBCU marching bands displayed their talents inside the NRG Stadium.

Alabama A&M University's marching band permed and did an amazing job on the field and in the stands,

 

Check out the Dancin Divas doing their thing.

My alma mater Bethune-Cookman University was in the building bringing the heat as usual.

The Bethune-Cookman University marching Wildcats even played one of my favorites from Silk Sonic during the battle in the stands.

There was one Alabama marching band that I looked forward to seeing at this event, but they were busy at a football game.

The Alabama State Marching Hornets put on a show in the stands during the MEAC/SWAC challenge against Howard University.

Of course, the halftime show was amazing and the ASU Honey Beez grabbed everyone's attention. even Grammy-nominated artist Chloe Bailey.

This is huge for not just Alabama State University but HBCU band culture as a whole.

Does this mean we could see Chloe with a surprise performance at the Magic City Classic?
