USF Herd Of Thunder-Rome

The University of South Florida Herd of Thunder marching band is back in America after ringing in the New Year in Italy. More than a hundred members of the band performed in Saint Peter’s Square, at a historic basilica, and took part in the Rome New Year’s Day Parade. We spoke to some rather jetlagged members of the Herd of Thunder – catch their story on the next University Beat on WUSF TV.
