BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Southern University band will perform during pre-game activities of next month's Super Bowl in New Orleans.

This marks the fourth time the "Human Jukebox" has performed at the Super Bowl.

"This is a testament and tribute to the hard work our young men and women put into their practices, performances and their efforts in the classroom," said Director of Bands Lawrence Jackson. "I am proud of them and happy for our university."

The Dancing Dolls, an 11-member dance team that accompanies the band, performed at halftime during last year's Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl will be played on February 3rd at the Superdome.
