The Ceremonial Band is the most traditional and versatile of the band’s ensembles and, as such, is the most frequently requested musical unit. Whether marching in hometown parades, military ceremonies, or patriotic openings for professional sporting events, the ceremonial band utilizes its assorted repertoire, which ranges from traditional marches to Dixieland jazz, in its effort to entertain hundreds of thousands of spectators yearly. Notable Ceremonial Band performances include annual participation in local Mardi Gras events, the pre-game ceremony for the 2007 Armed Forces bowl in Houston, Texas, and a New Orleans Saints half-time performance.
