About HBOB


The Honda Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of Black college marching bands and the unique academic experience offered by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Honda annually awards more than $200,000 in grants to participating marching bands during the program period.

Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase

Eight bands are chosen to advance to the Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase. The Invitational Showcase features musical performances from these eight HBCU marching bands.

The Power of Dreams

As a company that thrives on innovation, Honda is always challenging our associates to realize the “Power of Dreams.” For over 20 years, we’ve had a long-standing commitment to supporting the success of the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). With initiatives like the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge, we’ve been able to touch more than 100,000 students and award more than $7 million in grants. Over the past 13 years, the Honda Battle of the Bands has been committed to supporting the dreams of HBCUs by investing in their music education programs and showcasing their exceptional student musicians. As we continue to prepare these students to “March On!” both on and off the field, we look forward to another Invitational Showcase.
