The pageantry, show-stopping choreography and dazzling musicianship of the Mighty Marching Hornets Band will be front and center before a national audience as the new “Bama State Style” reality series premieres on the Lifetime Network.
The premiere of the television reality series featuring Alabama State University’s world-renowned Mighty Marching Hornets will air on Friday, April 17, 2015, at 10 p.m. (CST) on the Lifetime Network (check your local listings for channel and air times in your area).
The series chronicles the marching band from grueling practices to show-stopping performances during the fall of 2014. You’ll get up close and personal stories of the band members, as well as interviews with their esteemed director, James Oliver.
“The viewers will really see the hard work that the Mighty Marching Hornets put in all week in preparation for our eight-and-a-half-minute halftime show. They are going to be right there with us as we go through our pre-drill, practice and performance,” Oliver said. “Words cannot truly express how awesome this is for our band and for the University. The band’s appearance in this show will give the world a chance to see not only the musical opportunities here at ASU, but also the educational and academic opportunities.”
We encourage everyone in Hornet and HBCU Nation to share this exciting news via social media and help us get the word out about the premiere.
Congratulations to the Mighty Marching Hornets: “The Price of Glory is High!”
