During halftime Jackson State and Kentucky State will face off in another competition: the Circle City Classic Battle of the Bands. ESPN’s official HBCU band rankings lists Jackson State as number one among all Division I HBCUs, and Kentucky State is a finalist in HBCU Digest’s yet to be decided 2019 Best Marching Band Reward. With two acclaimed bands going head to head, many fans are looking forward to the musical performances as much as the football game.

The Sonic Boom of the South ranked one of 25 Outstanding College Marching Bands!
Jackson State University’s marching band, dubbed by members of the band in 1971 as the Sonic Boom of the South, performs a wide variety of styles in a wide range of venues. In addition to marching for the university, the Sonic Boom has played for several NFL teams. The 250 member band has performed covers of popular hits, been featured in The Smithsonian, and was ranked as the number one halftime show of 2016 by HBCU Sports.
