One week before the Southern University (SU) “Human Jukebox’s” 2016-2017 season-opening performance, fans attending the McDonald’s Queen City Battle of the Bands in Charlotte, North Carolina, will get a sneak preview of the SU Marching Band’s unique style and latest talent.

The often imitated, but never duplicated marching band from the Jaguar Nation will showcase its famous showmanship in the annual Queen City Battle of the Bands, Saturday, August 27, 2016, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., in Charlotte’s Memorial Stadium.
“Be expected to see another performance that will set the SU Band apart, for it’s the ‘S’ on our chest that makes us better than the rest,” boasts SU director of bands Nathan Haymer.
The annual display of bands, sponsored by Webber Marketing, was created to support the experience offered by the showmanship, commitment, and dedication that it takes to be in a historically black college and university (HBCU) marching band, and has donated more than $160,000 in scholarship money to the participating schools in three years.
