THE MARCHING 100
The Marching 100 is the official name of the marching band at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Florida. Since its inception, the band has been credited for 30 innovative techniques which have become standard operating procedures for many high school and collegiate marching band programs.
Ranking high among the many proud traditions of Florida A&M University is the highly acclaimed Marching “100” Band. The first band at this institution, formerly named A&M College, was organized in 1892 under the tutelage of P.A. Van Weller. From a meager store of 16 instruments, the Marching “100” has grown to over 420 members. This organization has been polished and refined to perfection for the past 104 years under the guidance of its directors.
The Florida A&M University Bands, a role model of excellence.
