HBCU Sports ranks ‘Jukebox’ preseason #1 HBCU band

8/24/2015

From HBCU Sports

Anyone who has ever spent any significant amount of time on an HBCU campus knows that marching band, and all it implies, is a sport. Much like football.

There are summer high school band camps, hosted by college band programs, created with the intent to attract future student musicians. Just like football.

Of course, there are those preseason band camps where - just like football - musicians endure the summer heat for hours on end learning new music, perfecting formations and dance routines all in anticipation of the first halftime show that will ultimately launch the start of a new season.

So, because we've determined that marching band is a sport, HBCU Sports presents the inaugural preseason top 15 HBCU band poll for 2015.
