The Kentucky State University Marching Thorobred Band represents the marching component of the program. The Thorobred Marching Band performs at all home football games and selected away games during the fall semester, and selected parades and marching band festivals. The Thorobred Marching Band has performed in several classics, including the St. Louis Gateway Classic (three times), Heritage Classic (Columbus, OH) and the Lexington Heritage Classic (Lexington, KY). The Marching Band has also participated in the Honda All-Star Battle of the Bands, where participating schools receive a $1,000 scholarship.
