Now for vignettes of a few more performers from the 4th Annual Battle of the Bands. Today we’ll be featuring three bands: Shockwave, Render and Sleeping on Sidewalks. First up is Shockwave…
Shockwave was the first band to arrive on Battle day and they had a whole crew of cool supporters on hand to help them out. These guys were so ready to rock and did such a great job! They played some killer covers by the Raconteurs, Ted Nugent, and 38 Special. Considering how young most of the band members are, it makes me wonder what sort of musicians they’ll be in the future…even more AWESOME I’m sure! We certainly hope they come out to next year’s Battle. Check ‘em out on MySpace. Next up is the band Render…
The winners of the 4th Annual Battle of the Bands are…
1st place: Emily Majetic
2nd place: Sleeping On Sidewalks
3rd place: FireSale
First, second, and third place winners received $100, $75, and $50 respectively. They will also each have the chance to play two paid gigs over the summer. Thanks to the City of Davenport Parks and Rec. Department for helping sponsor the 4th Annual Battle and for setting up the paid gigs! The first gig will be at Youth Fest on July 7th, and the second gig is at the Back to School Bash on August 14th. Check ‘em out. The other Battle performers were Render, Demon Ducks, Shockwave, Vanishing Point, and solo artist Jerra Williams.
Congrats to all the performers! And an extra special thanks to all the fans that came out to support them! It was such a great Battle and everyone played really well. It was also super cool to see all the bands working together helping each other with set up and tear down between bands. We hope they all had a good time and will be ready to rock out again on the Battle stage next year. For funzies we’ll be posting tidbits of all the bands on the blog over the next few days. So, keep an eye out.
Lastly, we’d like to extend a gigantic thank you to the U. S. Navy Rock Band who closed the evening with a great set! They covered everyone from Justin Timberlake to the Allman Brothers and had many of the audience members dancing around to the good tunes. Who knew rockin’ out at the library could be so much fun?!?
