Delta Music Institute
Commercial Music Bands
The Entertainment Industry Studies program is the home of three commercial music bands, each of which performs a diverse repertoire of music from the genres of blues, soul, funk, and rock. These bands are available for bookings at festivals, conferences, schools, and private events. The high energy performance of these bands and their dedication to the original recordings is sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
Students may enroll in any or all of the bands for one credit hour per semester each. Auditions are required at the beginning of each semester to determine skill level and placement within the band; scholarships are available.
