    This is definitely a joke! Savannah State can’t even outperform a high school band. This is too funny!

      Take a look at the video. Nothing high school about it. The band is in a different place from previous years. Peace!!!

        Exactly! Savannah State band is progressively moving in a great direction!

    The band maybe small but the lines are tight and the sound is great. The other bands maybe larger but the lines are sloppy and the sound is horrible.
