Madison Central Marching Band wows national audience with performance in Macy’s Parade

The Madison Central Marching Band stormed onto national television Thursday as part of the 93rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. After being introduced by NBC’s Al Roker, the band wowed the audience with a performance of “Animal” by the band Maroon 5, complete with the color guard in full body animal print, twirling matching flags. Madison Central was one of 11 marching bands in the parade, groups that spanned from Tucson, Ariz., to St. Petersburg, Fla.. Madison Central is the largest band in Kentucky history, according to the Macy’s Parade website.
