The 2012 Honda Battle of the Bands is kicking off on a newly redesigned website, hondabattleofthebands.com. The new website includes a timeline, which features video from previous battles, the opportunity to vote and the opportunity to interact with fans nationwide. The Honda Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of Black college marching bands and the unique academic experience offered by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Honda annually awards more than $200,000 in grants to participating marching bands during the program period.
The Battle of the Bands site was developed at Muse Communications, Los Angeles.
