With the organizers moving the event from its original location in Charlotte, North Carolina, after a year hiatus, the newly named National Battle of the Bands remerged in the Lone Star state of Texas.
Eight of the most celebrated HBCU marching bands gathered Sunday for a musical exhibition at NRG Stadium in Houston.
The bands in attendance included Texas Southern, North Carolina Central, Prairie View A&M, Talladega College, Southern University, Miles College, Tennessee State, and Florida A&M.
Even though the event is an exhibition to raise money for the programs that participate, bragging rights are still in order.
