Clash of the College Bands Tourney Begins Now! Week 1: University of Miami Concert Jazz Band vs. Princeton University Big Band

You may remember a few months back I was taking requests from you for the top college or university big bands in the country, so we could set up a little tournament for these bands (see Clash of the College Bands).

Well the nominations came in, and the bracket is set. Now it is up to you to see who wins. Here is how it works:

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.

You may view the tournament bracket by clicking here.

Below are the first two school bands, the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band vs. Princeton University Big Band.
