BALTIMORE (WJZ) – The Marching Ravens have become a staple of Ravens home games, and now the band is getting some national recognition.

The Travel Channel compiled 15 bucket lists experiences for football fans, and Baltimore’s “Marching Ravens” made the list.

The band was originally formed in 1947 as the Baltimore Colts’ Marching Band. The band continued to perform even after the Colts left for Indianapolis in 1984. For over a decade, the music continued until the Ravens formed in 1996.

The Marching Ravens story was featured on an ESPN 30 for 30 document titled “The Band That Wouldn’t Die.”

The Travel Channel’s list also includes other “must see’s” for football fans including the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Lambeau Field in Green Bay, as well as events such as the Super Bowl and the annual Army/Navy game.
