HBCU Battle of the Bands

Posted By on Sun, Jun 22, 2014 at 11:15 AM

The Magic City-All-Stars Alumni Band from Birmingham came to Memphis Friday night to battle the Memphis Mass Band, at Oakhaven Stadium for  the HBCU Alumni Weekend. These bands are composed primarily of former band members from historically black colleges like Tennessee State and Jackson State, although the bands seemed to contain some high school students and college students home for summer break. 

Memphis Mass Band plays Stax artist Johnnie Taylor's "Running Out of Lies."
