Welcome to the 2016-17 90 Degree Show. In this podcast we discuss the Granddaddy of battles The Honda BOTB from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. We welcome Christy Walker and Rashad Watters to the podcast to talk about their 2017 experience. We ask if this was a great Honda and if the performances were worthy of the circumstance. We will discuss what jumped out at us from the event and we will ponder over if this will be the last Honda BOTB. We talk briefly about some of the articles written about the Honda and about HBCU Bands and we wrap up with some schools that we would have liked to see this year and some schools to see in 2018.

The 90 Degree Show 2015 The Celebration Bowl

Celebration2

Welcome to the 2015 90 Degree Show Celebration Bowl! The bowl game to kick off the bowl season will be the champions of the Southwestern Athletic Conference in Alcorn State University, against the champions of the Mid Eastern Athletic Confernce in North Carolina A&T State University. We will talk about this matchup, what we thought about the game, what we thought about this year overall in bands and who we think will win the Honda. This bowl was a great experience on TV, but can we get the SIAC and the CIAA involved? We brainstorm about how we can add our two other conferences in a bowl game or ask should the teams play each other? This is our last broadcast before the Honda Battle of the Bands in 2016. Tonight we welcome the great Christy Walker and the owner and founder of Block Band Music and Publishing, Rashad Watters
