The MEAC-SWAC Challenge wouldn’t be the same without the famed marching bands. Come see the number 1 ranked band in the MEAC, Bethune-Cookman, take on the number 1 ranked band in the SWAC, Jackson State, here in Atlanta at the MEAC-SWAC Challenge.

The Battle of the Bands will be an exciting half-time performance between Bethune-Cookman University Marching Wildcats and the Jackson State University Sonic Boom of the South. After the game, they will square off and highlight their best sounds during the 5th Quarter.

That’s always been Cookman’s problem..they have an amazing sound, but they’re boring as hell.

They must have played “Lets Go” & “Big Ballin” 50 times.

I know JSU was bored as hell sitting across them lol. Cookman’s bones and trumpets were scared to play back at JSU smh.

And Cookman had the driest halftime show I’ve ever seen. Idk what the hell was up with their song selection in the 5th quarter. Straight up high school ish!

Southern is coming out swinging .... but I’ll say they’re showing their hand a lil too early... that berry white arrangement is the truth , but where do you go from there ? It’s tough. the fat guy Todd is their weakest arranger... and the booms true sound isn’t there quite yet. Trump funk gone get more powerful as the season goes ... and Johnson got some bangers still in the boom... glad the book is staying away from a heavy rap book this year so far he is and candy rain on the first game ... sheesh

That Candy Rain was the shii lol. I was like man the Boom is really balanced. Seems like everyone is focused on just cranking except the Boom.

Nice overall show from the boom. I saw a few trombones a little confused, but they corrected it with a quick recovery. I kinda wish crankfest would just be SU vs JSU if any. Not interested in anyone else.

I don’t think that was their hand, you have to send a message at a BOTB! I love that Barry White joint!
