Get ready for crowd-pleasing dance teams, high-stepping drum majors, precision drumlines and roaring brass sections.

Before Saturday’s big matchup between Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman at Camping World Stadium, top high school bands from across the country will perform at the highly anticipated Florida Blue Battle of the Bands presented by Publix. Performances by the world-renowned FAMU “Marching 100” and B-CU “Marching Wildcats” will culminate the evening.

The Marching 100 of Florida A&M University boasts performances at prestigious events such as the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and a presidential inauguration. The Marching Wildcats are a 325-member unit known as the Pride of B-CU. The band has been featured on the Ellen Show, performed at numerous Super Bowl and NFL games, and was featured on the Netflix special Marching Orders.
