Battle of the marching bands
Tuskegee University's Marching Crimson Pipers
The Marching Crimson Pipers Band is one of the oldest marching bands among historically black institutions. Known for their unique marching style; powerful music arrangements; intricate dance steps; and quality presentations by the dancing piperettes, flag line and soulful drum majors, the Marching Crimson Pipers have delighted fans for nearly 100 years.
Under the direction of Warren Duncan since 1976, the band has enjoyed a long history of excellence, including nine appearances in the highly acclaimed Honda Battle of the Bands, a national invitational showcase for historically black colleges and universities.
