Band of the Week: Miles College

The Purple Marching Machine is one bad brass band.

Fairfield, AL–Heading into the SIAC Championship game Miles College is the HBCU Gameday Band of the Week. The Purple Marching Machine is under the direction of Willie J. Snipes, Jr., a Miles alumnus.

“Our sound is not like anyone else’s. If you go listen to any other band in America; Miles’ Band sounds like Miles’ Band, and that’s the formula we want to keep,” said Snipes.

Listen to and enjoy the sound of the Purple Marching Machine.
