On the heels of an invitation to perform for the Queen of England during the 2018 London New Year’s Day Parade, the Pride of McNeese Marching Band was asked to welcome a crowd of over 2,000 celebrities, business executives, socialites and professional athletes to the lavish grand opening of the C. Baldwin Hotel in downtown Houston, Texas.

The band’s strong reputation drew the attention of the hotel’s management, and McNeese was the only university band to perform.
