Battle of the Bands 2011: A Musical Montage of a Rockin' Night
So . . . last year, you guys had to wait an entire month to find out who won the Battle of the Bands. I vowed to do better in 2011, and I did! Yay me!
This past Friday, June 3, the Hoover Public Library hosted eight bands in our Eighth Annual Battle of the Bands:
All Night Long
BSM Rock Ensemble
BSM Rock Symphony
Each band was limited to just two songs to impress both the 303 teens and parents in the audience and the panel of judges. The bands were scored on musicality, originality, appeal, and showmanship, and the two highest scorers earned a cash prize, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
In second place, winning $200 . . . Remedy!
And in first place, winning $300 and a performance on the Library Plaza . . . Thamaturgy!
Thanks to the many, many wonderful people who made this event possible!
