With roots that date beyond the early masterful directorship of W.C. Handy, the 230-member Marching Maroon and White Band has achieved worthy recognition as one of the best show bands in the nation. In 2006, the Band led the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. Each year, the musical group makes several performances at various gridiron classics and other sports occasions, parades, as well as local and regional events.
But the wear and tear on the proud Maroon and White uniforms has approached the point of no return. Designed to last through the rigors of four eventful years, the Maroon and White outfits are passing seven years of age.
