Clash of the College Bands Tourney – Week 5 (Quarterfinals): University of Miami Concert Jazz Band vs. University of Northern Iowa Jazz Band 1

9 Feb

Congratulations to the week 4 winner, University of North Texas Two O’ Clock Lab Band, who beat the Michigan State with 72% of the vote.

Now we head into the quarterfinals, and I expect some close matchups. Week 5 begins now, with the quarterfinal match up between the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band versus the University of Northern Iowa Jazz Band I.

Each week, two college or university big bands will “face off”. You, as the reader, will listen to a song from each band, and then vote for the one you like the best. After the week is over, one team will move on to the next round, and we will feature two new bands. The last band standing is the Clash of the College Bands winner.
