The band will be featured at 5 p.m. today on the television show, "Ariel, Zoey, & Eli, Too," on the Detroit Public Television station.

The music variety show stars 14-year-old twins, Ariel and Zoey Engelbert, from Ann Arbor, and their 11-year old brother Eli.

The episode will feature the siblings and the marching band performing the show's theme song, "Sweet Company," which was filmed at EMU's Rynearson Stadium.

The show will include a featured segment, including interviews with Amy Knopps, assistant professor and director of the marching band, as well as drum majors Adam Sniezek and Jacob Nurse.

Nurse, Sniezek and Knopps will share their experiences and what it's like to be part of the EMU department of music and dance.

This is the second time the band has performed a television show's theme song. In 2010, the band was featured in regional 'Hawaii Five-O' promo. About 25 members of the band, dressed in full uniform, performed for a crew of CBS officials.
