In 2003 Honda made a commitment to showcase the heart-stopping musical talents of students in
HBCU Bands. Honda Battle of the Bands has served as the blueprint event that showcases the most
recognizable and celebrated examples of HBCU culture to the rest of the world.
HBOB continues to evolve into a platform built for and by the HBCU community. Known as the
Marching Band homecoming event of the year, the HBOB stage has hosted some of the greatest
performances and moments of all time.
