Lol wow you guys held no punches on Crankfest :lol: :lol: :lol:
I agree it was a hot mess beginning to end. The only band that impressed me was Alcorn.

The constant onslaught of rap songs was just sonically draining to me. Very abrasive to the ear.

I also agree on the statements in regards to DEGA. I think their a controversial band. They have kept the band world somewhat intriguing these past couple of years. I think being the bad guys is their nitch. With that being said if you're going to be the Villain you have to be good and consistent. DEGA sounded pretty good at the Queen City BOTB. When I listened to them at Crankfest I was very confused as to why their sound made such a drastic decline in a 2 month period. There is no excuse as to why they sound the way they do. They don't have a football schedule so no shows to prepare for. In theory they should have more than enough time to prepare and perfect their music. I think this program has the potential to be a really good program. They really need to start paying attention to detail and fine tune their program.

Wow I heard the exact same thing from 3 other folks that they sounded OK at the Queen City and then sounding off at Crankfest.

I think they are doing it on purpose or like Rashad said focusing on the wrong thing to get their name out there....Kinda like they are the Kanye of HBCU bands lol

I would love to know the recruiting numbers or how the young folks feel about Dega and if they are going to continue to grow.
