The Marching Storm

Band Bio

The Prairie View A&M Marching Storm has astonishingly been in existence for 80-plus years with known history dating back as far as World War I. The nationally regarded Marching Storm along with auxiliary groups the Black Foxes and Twirling Thunder, has had the privilege of bringing the spirit and culture of Prairie View to a wide range of audiences and venues under the direction of head directors Ewell, Daniels, Mosley, Hebert, McQueen, Edwards and currently Dr. Tim Zachery. 

Members of the Marching Storm are honored to have completed many hours of community service in elementary, middle and high schools across the state of Texas. The focus is always to maintain the 10 pillars of the Marching Storm: Preparation, Commitment, Consistency, Discipline, Character, Pride, Scholarship, Family, Responsibility and Marching Storm.

Notable performances include several Presidential and Gubernatorial inauguration parades, The Tournament of Roses parade, six appearances at the Honda Battle of the Bands Showcase, and several NFL halftime performances, including Superbowl 45. The Marching Storm has been viewed by over 100 million viewers during the Formula 1 Opening Day activities at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas and performed as the opening act for 2016 Super Bowl Gospel Fest on BET. In November, The Marching Storm will represent the state of Texas in the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
