Offers some historical reflections through present-day perspectives. It gives viewers an inside look of what it’s like being in a HBCU band. Participants – both modern day and “old-school” – discuss a wide range of topics … detailing everything from what’s expected of new members and what standards they’ll need to meet… to necessities like an ability to march, possessing strong musically, and having a tough mentality from day one! Among the benefits most graduates say they’ve walked away with, are better character, more discipline & a stronger work ethnic… as well as strengthening their time management and teamwork skills!

The project features Tallahassee’s own, World-Renown Marching 100 of Florida A&M University, and has an extensive interview with the band’s iconic creator, the late Dr. William P. Foster!
