TALLADEGA, Ala. -The Talladega College band has made national headlines in the last year as it performed during President Donald J. Trump’s Inaugural Parade in January in Washington, D.C. On Sunday, the Marching Tornado Band will once again brilliantly  perform in front of thousands in New Orleans.

The band is set to take center stage during halftime of the New Orleans Saints gridiron match against the Detroit Lions in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Director of Bands Miguel Bonds believes that this will be great for the college. “This will be good exposure for our band and our school” he said. “As a native of New Orleans, I am always excited to go home.”

Performing at Mercesdes-Benz Stadium is nothing new for the Talladega College Band, it performed in the stadium at a Saints game last season.

Other recent performances include The Queen City Battle of the Bands in Charlotte, NC; The Heritage Classic Parade in Memphis TN; and the Fairburn Fall Festival in Atlanta, GA.
