Battle of the bands

Football wasn’t the only battle being waged Saturday afternoon at Alcorn State University’s Jack Spinks Stadium. Also squaring off were Alcorn’s own Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite and Texas Southern’s Ocean of Soul. Both bands were ready to win the hearts of the attending fans.

As the visiting band, Ocean of Soul was allowed to play first. Their performance featured recent songs such as “Whatever You Like,” and a dance-off between presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain.

Alcorn’s Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite entertained the crowd with classics R&B songs along with the Alcorn Golden Girls dance team.

It was a great battle with both bands playing their hearts out. In the end, though, the real winners were the fans.
