Music Director Benji B, who is working with the band on the fashion show, is also a well-known DJ from Britain, a BBC Radio presenter and record producer.

“In all the work we’ve done on shows here, authenticity is really at the center of everything we’re interested in. We don’t reference things or emulate things. We go to the top, and that’s why we came to you,” Benji B said in a release, referring to the band.

“It may feel exciting to be in Paris to do this project,” Benji B added, “but it’s just as exciting to us, and it’s just as much of an honor to have what they do on the runway.”

Benji B and FAMU Director of Bands Shelby Chipman talk in a studio during the Marching “100” rehearsal in Paris.

Since their arrival, band members have been in the studio rehearsing songs arranged by Louis Vuitton’s music producers and practicing their routines on a simulated runway. The Marching 100 performance is scheduled to last about 30 minutes.

“I’m so proud of the tremendous work they have put into this show in a short time,” FAMU Director of Bands and Professor of Music Shelby Chipman said in a release. “I can’t wait for the world to witness this explosive and extraordinary production.”
