|The Florida A&M Rattlers Rocked Paris
Just 2 weeks ago the cosmetic company - Louis Vuitton - invited the famed Rattler Marching Band to come to Paris to promote the company. The cosmetic firm paid the cost to bring 35 musicians to Paris to play. They also got special Louis Vuitton uniforms for the events.
It must have been har picking 35 out of 200.
The members had to work to get passports quickly. They also had to practice for the unscheduled trip.
The band was great and the locals loved them. We happened to be staying in Paris at the time with family and were very excited with the band representing Tallahassee in Europe.
They will hurry home to Tallahassee tomorrow - and beat us home - as we fly on Saturday. Florida A&M campus is less than a mile from our home. We can often here them practice.
