Alcorn Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite selected for 2017 Honda Battle of the Bands
The Alcorn State University Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite marching band is being rewarded for being one of the top historically black college and university bands in the nation.
The Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite will be one of the eight bands participating in the 2017 Honda Battle of the Bands Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia at 1:30 p.m.
The Honda Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of black college marching bands and the unique academic experience offered by HBCUs. Honda annually awards approximately $200,000 in grants to participating marching bands during the program period.
Alcorn Director of Bands Dr. Renardo Murray is proud of the band’s invitation, and looks forward to putting on a show for thousands of spectators.
“It is truly an honor for the Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite marching band to return to Atlanta next year and represent the University on the national level,” said Murray. “Performing in the 2017 Honda Battle of the Bands is reflective of what kind of band the Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite really is.”
