Just one week removed from the HBCU band showcase in Greenville, S.C., the annual Queen City Battle of the Bands, held at Charlotte’s Memorial Stadium on Saturday, provided us with another glimpse of what we can expect to see from HBCU marching bands this season.
“Webber Marketing created this community event to enhance the exposure of Historically Black Colleges & Universities marching bands and has donated over $160,000 in scholarship money to the participating schools in three years.”
The eight marching bands featured in this year’s exhibition were from Benedict College, Bethune-Cookman, North Carolina A&T, North Carolina Central, Talladega College, Tennessee State, Southern University and Winston-Salem State.
We’ve found video of each band performance. Take a look at each video below and then vote in our poll.
