Just got back from a great band meeting at Clear Channel in Somerset KY for their upcoming 8th Annual Battle of the Bands on January 3, 4, and 5, 2014. I was amazed at the great lengths that Clear Channel is striving for to make this a fair competition. I was further amazed at how much each band expressed a desire to ensure that all bands in the competition succeed and that the 3 day festival is a success.
The Battle of the Bands should turn out to be a good day of music, food and fun. God's Pantry will be at the door taking donations of canned food. We ask all of our fans and anybody who is coming dig in the cabinets and give a little, or if you can spare it, a lot to a great cause.
We drew the 6:30 pm time slot and will play until 7pm. But if at all possible be there at 2pm when the doors open and stay until the last band leaves the stage at 11pm. They have an exhibition band scheduled for 11pm until 12pm which will be announced shorty. Then at 12pm the 6 Bands that will move on to the finals on Jan 5 will be announced.

The 6 Bands chosen by the panel of judges to move on to the finals will play a 45 min set on Sunday the 5th starting at 2pm. The overall winner will be chosen at 7pm on Sunday Jan. 5th.
Come out and support Local Kentucky music and make a day of it. There will be food, fun, band merchandise and above all great music!
See you there!!
