Yes, the Louisiana Leadership Band is a clone of the Human Jukebox, and whose practice facilities are located within the shadows of the SU campus.

Hmmm... kinda hate they rammed them all together in a segment like that but still very historic. If there's nothing else planned this would make HBCU's the only bands to participate in this inauguration. Certainly the majority of bands at minimum.

AT&T Uverse carried it in some places. I would think this will certainly be out there on YouTube before too long. The whole thing was amazing.

Speaking of the Presidential Inaugural, how does one explain Howard University Marching Band dancers' wearing those skimpy outfits in the dead of winter in Washington, DC? The temperature must have been in the upper 30s/lower 40s. All of the participants were wearing coats and other winter essentials. Not just Howard's band, but all hbcus, how do you wear in dead of winter the same outfits you wear in August and September? It looks inappropriate! If we are, as we say, all about excellence, shouldn't that excellence apply to our decision-making relative to the appropriateness of the attire our dancers wear and when they wear it?

Are you including Southern in your question about the dancer’s uniform?

When PV did the inaugural parade, the Black Foxes wore sleeves and pants. It was wet and ice cold that year. This year didnt seem as cold. The sun was out atleast.

"Not just Howard's band, but all hbcus," is what my comments said. That clearly should have answered your question.
I saw that and I thank you for not being biased. I’ve seen a lot of comments where people often contradict themselves.

If you saw that and realized he wasn’t being biased then why did you ask him if he was including the Dolls? 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️
