SOS is a multi-award-winning marching band that competes and wins many battle of the band competitions across the southern United States. Founding Band Director Antoine Miller, a former Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University’s (FAMU) Marching 100 bandmate, established the SOS Band in 2018 after a conversation with a fellow student about ways to prevent criminal activity among young adults ages 18 to 23. Initially created to reduce crime among this age group, the SOS Band enrolls youth ages 5 to 23 with no or limited experience in music and marching band performance. In addition to music, Antoine utilizes the knowledge and experience he gained while attending FAMU to teach the children about discipline and teamwork.
