The Alabama State University Mighty Marching Hornets Marching Band is heading to reality tv. The band will soon start to film episodes for the A&E Network, according to the university.

Band director, Professor James Oliver, said “Bama State Style” will be family-based and will highlight student growth as they navigate through the music program.

“This is a unique and wonderful opportunity to share with the public, through the A&E Network, our incredible university, and to let the world see how we nurture our ASU band members into becoming good musicians and motivate them to become great students academically,” Oliver said.

“Bama State Style” is expected to air in January 2015.

This isn’t the first time the band has been highlighted on TV. It was also featured in an online miniseries, called “Magic Before the Classic,” for the National Black Television Network.
