For all the bandheads that have sat at home and watched young football players tell the world where they will be going to school, now we have our own show for marching bands!! That’s right on April 28th, 2015, The Marching Podcast will host the National Signing Day Show for Marching Bands. We have picked some students from all over the country to tell the world on our network where they will be going to school to get an education and to become part of the marching band family.
We are excited to bring some of our young people into the spotlight. We also wish to make a connection with them when they go compete at the highest level of excitement in marching arts. Finally, we hope to increase the knowledge and awareness of these schools and their band programs, so we can promote and generate excitement for young people to aspire. The students are:
Manuel Powell – Nansemond River High School in Suffolk, VA
Alexis Terry – Dominguez High School in Compton, CA
Cheyenne Allen – Dominguez High School in Compton, CA

Hello world.. This is Joe Beard here to start documenting the love that I have for black college bands and to create a form of lively hood, promise, future, and community uplift to help change my community and to spread my love of black college bands to the world and to provide an avenue of education to our youth.
Of course no one does anything alone so that is why my partner in crime Samuel Glover will be building this empire with me. Not to mention the real brains behind any organization Steve Johnson… we will be applying teamwork that we learned when marching together for the International Institution of Sound Johnson C. Smith. After going our separate ways and with the help of all this new technology we are here to provide a service that we ourselves are dying for.
This blog is to post our ideas and to journal our road to what we are going for. We have individually done things to this point so now we are using this site to bring it all together. We would like to have a weekly podcast, that would build our capital and name and soon be an avenue for youth to earn music degrees to college and prepare them for lift. He hope to one day have a music school, a battle of the bands, mock drafts, high school seminars, anything that may excite the pulse of a bandsman so that we can not only build popularity but build community by exciting more of our youth about college and getting an education.
