Grambling’s famous marching band to perform at Raiders game

Grambling State’s “World Famed Tiger Marching Band” will perform at halftime of Sunday’s game between the Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles at Allegiant Stadium.

The band has appeared at Super Bowls and presidential inaugurations.

“The band is excited about our upcoming performance for the Raiders,” band director Nikole Roebuck said in a statement. “To be the first marching band to perform at an NFL game in Las Vegas is another first for the band. We are looking forward to bringing the house down with our high-energy packed show. Look out Vegas, the World Famed is coming to put on a great show!!!”

The Raiders-Eagles game begins at 1:05 p.m.
