The Kentucky State University Mighty Marching Thorobreds is used to performing under the bright lights and entertaining a crowd at half time. But performing for a NFL audience is new.

KSU will perform during halftime at the Lucas Oil Stadium of the Indianapolis Colts game on September 15.

The Band’s Director, Kalomo Bailey, says he was contacted this summer about the opportunity.

“This is a big time performance,” Bailey said. “This is not our usual college half time show.”

Bailey describes the group’s style as flashy and entertaining.

And as far as the band's nerves for their pro football debut…

“Once they get out there and hear the roar of the crowd, they're just gonna blow the roof off that dome,” Bailey says.

The Indianapolis Colts will be playing the Minnesota Vikings on the day when KSU plays the half time show.

The Thorobreds Express last performed for a Colts game in 1993. It used to be an annual event. The band also performed at Bengals' games in the past. Someone did not do a good investigative job. At least it was reported. Go Breds!!!

As an alum of the Mighty Marching Thorobreds, I would like to say that this is not the first time that the Kentucky State University Marching Band has played before an NFL audience! During our first trip to the Gateway Classic, we performed during a St. Louis Rams game. I understand that this is the Indianapolis Colts, but I just want the facts to be straight. Many blessings.
