“Ok, when I’m in love, I’m in love! Now and 4ever I will love the SU Human Jukebox. So please bear with me during football season because I will be turnt up! I love the team; I love the school but I’m especially in love with the band. When I need a daily boost, I visit their YouTube page. I’m asking SU alumni, for real, for real to support the band, visit their social media. If you don’t know the Human Jukebox, I invite you to get to know Southern University Marching Band, better known as the HUMAN JUKEBOX.
