Battle of Bands A Success - Winners Announced
Last night's Battle of the Bands appears to have been successful for a first event of its type as part of the Clayton Town Square Concert Series. About 800 people showed up to listen to five bands perform for cash prizes. Some photos and video will be posted over the next few days.
Here's how the bands fared:
First Place: South Station
Second Place: The Grey Area
Third Place: The Whistlestop
Fourth Place (tie): Hip Sauce & Sandbox Band
The bands were judged on Musicianship; Presentation; Originality; Commercial Appeal and Audience Reaction.
Comedian Leroy Seabrooks (above)kept the audience entertained as best he could during the band changes and during one period of technical difficulty with the sound system and did a very good job throughout the evening.
This was the last concert of the 2008 Town Square Concert Series. The 2009 Series will be announced by January 1.
