Tennessee State University’s marching band will play a halftime show during a nationally televised NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams in September.
The Aristocrat of Bands will perform at the St. Louis Edward Jones Dome on Sept. 26 for the game beginning at 7:25 p.m. CST.
“This is a real honor,” said Reginald McDonald, acting director of TSU bands. “We are excited to perform in a different market and let the Midwest know what TSU is all about.”
The band is also performing at the Gateway Classic football game at the Edward Jones Dome on Sept. 28.
The Aristocrat of Bands has played halftime shows each season for the Tennessee Titans, but McDonald said TSU hopes the St. Louis performances will give the university a chance to recruit in an area the school does not usually approach.
