Who Is Performing the Halftime Show at the 2024 Sugar Bowl Between Texas and Washington?

    The College Football Playoff semifinal between Texas and Washington will have a halftime show. Find out who you will be able to see during the Sugar Bowl!

    The Sugar Bowl matchup between the Texas Longhorns and Washington Huskies is highly anticipated and will be one of the most-watched football games of the season. As part of the College Football Playoffs, the winner heads to the National Championship a week later.

    Last season, both playoff semifinals had viewerships of over 20 million people, and this year’s Sugar Bowl could gain more with Texas making the playoff for the first time.

    With this huge event comes a halftime show, but who will be performing?

    Who Is Performing the Sugar Bowl Halftime Show?

    The halftime show at the Sugar Bowl at Ceaser’s Superdome in New Orleans will be the Texas and Washington marching bands.

    The marching bands of both sides are expected to take to the field during halftime and perform their own unique style in front of a sell-out crowd and millions watching at home.

    Both bands are famous both in the US and overseas, with Texas’ band performing at huge events and Washington’s band performing worldwide.

    You will see the visual difference between the bands because of the stylistic differences with Washington using the traditional chair step style, which is usually associated with teams in the Big Ten. The style uses more exaggerated leg movements, and the step looks similar to how the leg looks when sitting in a chair.

    Texas Marching Band

    Texas’ Longhorn Band is famous across the country and has picked up huge awards and performed at huge events over the decades. They are also known as the Showband of the Southwest and were founded in 1900. The band now comprises around 375 students who all take music courses.

    The Longhorn Band performed during Super Bowl VII and has played at the inauguration parades for several presidents, including George, H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and John F. Kennedy.

    Washington Marching Band

    The Washington Husky Marching Band has around 240 members and was founded in 1929. It is also known worldwide, having made tours to Europe and Asia.

    The marching band is also famous for being credited with popularizing The Wave (also known as the Mexican Wave) in 1981. During that season, the Huskies created a wave at several games, and while they were not the inventors of the spectacle, they made the wave the cultural phenomenon it is today.

    The Sugar Bowl will also have a special rendition of the national anthem before the game. Both sets of bands will make a great atmosphere at a sell-out Superdome.

    Texas is expected to travel well, with fans excited to be in the College Football Playoffs for the first time.
