Honeybeez History

The ASU Honey-Beez came about in 2004, when ASU's band director, James Oliver, had an idea to allow five "plus size young-ladies" to be featured with the Alabama State University Mighty Marching Hornets.   The concept was initially for the Honey Beez to perform for just one game, but the fans went wild over them; the Honey Beez did a great job, and the rest is history.

The Beez follow a performance routine during our half-time football show - they are put at the end of the half-time show with a one minute routine. With the Beez bringing up the rear of our half-time show, they always bring the house down with an automatic standing ovation – then we march off the field with that little edge they give us. They always create a "buzz" from the audience members!

One of the most important qualifications to be a Honey Bee is the outer and inner beauty of the ladies, which includes their self-esteem, attitude, their makeup, sense of fashion, and on-field confidence. The minimum weight requirement to be a Honey Bee is approximately a weight of 230lbs - 250lbs.  But, remember, it's rude to ask a lady her weight.

Alabama State University has always been at the forefront of equality, justice and free-thinking since it was founded in 1867 Alabama by nine former slaves – it believes that plus-size ladies have a place in entertainment and not just to be funny, but to perform with confidence and majesty.

Our motto: We are big, beautiful, energetic, self-confident ladies with a strong attitude. If you think we aren't serious, watch out because you may just get stung!
