By on January 21, 2019 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – A band with a long and illustrious track record will soon add another monumental appearance to their resume.

Members and staff with the Marching Wildcats at Bethune-Cookman University have announced that their marching band will take the field at the first ever game of the Alliance of American Football and the Orlando Apollos.

The band will begin the show at 8 p.m. on February 9th at Spectrum Stadium with a pregame show, including the national anthem.

Later on in the night, BCU will then take the field again during halftime for an “All-Star Set” of the band’s favorite songs from the 2018 season.

“Spectrum Stadium and this stage with the AAF is an ideal venue to do what we do best, perform at an elite level from the enjoyment of the fans,” said Dr. Donovan Wells, the BCU band director. “We’re working hard to put together a great show and look forward to performing for the fans in Orlando.”

This edition of the Marching Wildcats boasts 310 members, along with auxiliary units the “Sophisticat Flag Corps” and the “14 Karat Gold Dancers.” Just last year, the Marching Wildcats were also featured on the Netflix Original Series “Marching Orders.”

Head coach Steve Spurrier, former University of South Carolina Gamecocks coach, and the Apollos will be hosting the Atlanta Legends at Spectrum Stadium, marking the first game in the inaugural season of the Alliance of American Football.

Fans can purchase season tickets for the Orlando Apollos for as low as $75. You can find out more by clicking here.
