Congratulations to the week 5 winner, the University of Northern Iowa Jazz Band I, who edged out the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band with 54% of the vote.
The quarterfinals continue now, and I expect some close matchups. Week 6 begins now, with the quarterfinal match up between the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Ensemble versus the Whitworth University Jazz Ensemble 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.
Below are the next two school bands.
