The Invitational Showcase is the culmination of the Honda Battle of the Bands and will take place on January 25, 2014, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, where tens of thousands of HBCU marching band fans will converge for one of the nation’s most distinguished marching band events. Also American hip-hop artist Big Sean will be performing LIVE!

Widely known within the marching band community as “The Honda,” the Invitational Showcase provides a national stage to highlight the distinct showmanship of HBCU marching bands. The eight bands selected to perform are:

· Alabama A&M University, Marching Maroon & White (Southwestern Athletic Conference)

· Alabama State University, Mighty Marching Hornets (Southwestern Athletic Conference)

· Bethune-Cookman University, Marching Wildcats (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference)

· Morehouse College, The Marching Maroon Tigers (Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference)

The eight HBCUs will receive a $20,000 grant from Honda for their music education programs, plus an all-expenses paid trip to Atlanta for the Invitational Showcase. The final eight bands were chosen through a voting process that incorporates feedback from online fan votes, band directors, HBCU school presidents and representatives from American Honda.
