It appears the HBCU marching band season for 2016 began Saturday in Greenville, S.C. with the annual Battle for the Crown Battle of the Bands.

The event, which benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters, featured HBCU bands from Alabama State, Savannah State, North Carolina A&T and South Carolina State.

We’ve found videos of each performance and are asking you to select a winner.
