For those who haven't heard or saw, Bama State Style is basically a show giving the world a look into the world famous HBCU marching band. It chronicles auditions for drum majors, practices for the Stingettes and the Honey Beez and the legacy. Most importantly, it shows a glimpse into the college life at an HBCU.
Obviously I wasn't the only one who didn't get the memo about the show. I searched the hashtag BamaStateStyle on Twitter and the chatter was very light, mainly from people who either currently attends or have graduated from ASU or those like me who thinks shows like this is necessary.
I've waited to blog about this to see if I'd see more advertisement for the show prior to the second episode. Nope. Didn't happen and had I not set the DVR to record, I probably would've missed it. Check out the about for the show on the Lifetime website below. It is very, very brief AND the photo used above is the ONLY photo on the site (aside from the background) for season one. Hmm. From two episodes there's only one photo? Wow.
