Battle of Bands

A few weeks ago, we told you about an upcoming Battle of the Bands competition that was accepting local talent.

Now, we know who is vying for the title.

The event, sponsored by H Bros Entertainment and New Rock 104.9 FM, will take place at 8 p.m. April 25 at The Gypsy in Fayetteville.

Playing during the first round of the competition will be, in no particular order, Apartment 5, Marca, Dreamfast and Open Addiction.

Bands will be judged on stage talent, music appeal, crowd interaction and musical talent.

Winners will get studio time, gift certificates to Ben Jacks Music and more.

This competition is the first of a four-round battle. Winners of each of the four competitions will advance to a championship round, which is scheduled to take place at the end of this year.

The next round will be in June at a venue to be announced. Applications for future competitions are being accepted. Interested in playing? E-mail Brandon Gonzalez for details.

Admission to watch the April 25 audio rumble is $5.
