The phone call came on Friday. The Obama Inaugural Committee invited the Alexis I. duPont High School Tiger Marching Band to come and strut their stuff at the January ceremony.
It's the third time the school's band has had this honor. The Tiger Marching Band performed for President Jimmy Carter's Inauguration in 1977 and for President H.W. Bush's Inauguration in 1988.
The University of Delaware's Fighting Blue Hens Marching Band will also perform at the Obama Inauguration.
