Albany - Albany State University's band has been recognized as one of the top bands in the country.   Now, the Marching Rams will get to show off their skills in a renowned competition in Atlanta.

The band was chosen to perform in the Honda Battle of the Bands on January 27th. They'll compete against other top bands from Historically Black Colleges around the country. In addition to being selected to showcase their talent, the band also received $10,000 that will go toward student scholarships and equipment.

Band Director Michael DeCuir says, "Extremely proud. I am so proud of the students because they've been working very hard this year and to be recognized as one of the best, because we know we stand on a lot of shoulders. It makes you feel so much pride. If makes you feel so good."
