We perform for over 70,000 people at Hurricanes football games held at Hard Rock Stadium, as well as championship bowl games, nationally televised NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball games, March Madness Basketball championship tournaments, and marching band festival exhibitions. In addition, we bring energy and pageantry to Homecoming Weekend, Pep Rallies, community events, and more.
