Southern selected to perform at annual Battle of the Bands

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge's Southern University will represent Historically Black Colleges and Universities at a “Battle of the Bands” invitational.

Southern, along with seven other bands, will go to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to showcase their talents. Honda, the event's sponsor, will give Southern a $20,000 grant that will go to supporting the ‘Human Jukebox's' music education programs.

“To be included among these great marching band is humbling,” said Director of Bands Nathan Haymer, “We hope that our performance will be one that makes our students and the Jaguar Nation proud.”

Each band will nominate an outstanding member of their community that is helping students achieve their dreams, and the winner will be recognized at the showcase.

Tickets are available now, starting at $10, at www.hondabattleofthebands.com/tickets
