Two area high school bands to perform at HBCU All-Star Battle of the Bands in Atlanta

Two of Atlanta’s top high schools, Pebblebrook High School – the Mighty Marching Machine and Westlake High School – the Mighty Marching Lions, will perform at the HBCU Battle of the Bands at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 4, 2023.

Showcasing more than 35,000 student musicians over the last 17 years, HBCU All-Star Battle of the Bands will feature talented performers from Alabama State University – the Mighty Marching Hornets, North Carolina A&T – the Blue and Gold Marching Machine, Bethune-Cookman University – the Marching Wildcats, South Carolina State University – the Marching 101, Norfolk State University – the Spartan Legion Band and Tennessee State University – the Aristocrat of Bands.

“The battle is back, and I can’t wait to watch this group of talented students at the world’s largest showcase of HBCU marching bands,” said Lindsey B. Sarjeant, Music Department Chairman and Chief Music Arranger for Florida A&M University’s marching band, the Incomparable Marching 100, Chairman of the HBCU All-Star Battle of the Bands and Music Department Chairman and Director of Jazz Studies at Florida A&M University. “This is the 18th year I’ve worked with this legacy event alongside its founder and producer, and I know the opportunity for HBCUs to come together will provide students with memories to last a lifetime.”

In addition to the performance, there will be an HBCU college fair at the College Football Hall of Fame, with over 45 HBCUs from around the country.
