Mighty Marching Thorobreds perform to a record crowd in the 2022 National Battle of the Bands
The Kentucky State University Mighty Marching Thorobreds were one of eight HBCU marching bands to perform at the 2022 Pepsi National Battle of the Bands (NBOTB) in Houston, Texas August 27, 2022.
The band traveled over 900 miles to perform to a record-setting crowd of 55,000 fans in NRG Stadium.
Presented by Toyota, NBOTB showcases the country’s top marching bands and is created to enhance the exposure of HBCUs and their marching bands.
Voted the "2019 Best Band in the Land" by the national HBCU Awards Committee, the Mighty Marching Thorobreds are directed by Alvin Level. In 2021, the band claimed the top spot in ESPN's The Undefeated’s final HBCU band rankings of 2021.
