BRATTLEBORO- Area youth bands can launch their musical careers by competing at Youth Services’ Battle of the Bands at the River Garden on Friday, November 5, during Gallery Walk night, from 7 to 10 pm. The public is encouraged to attend and vote for their favorite group with their applause.

In addition to the audience and youth judges, several individuals from both the recording and music industry will help choose the top band.

First prize is five hours of professional recording time donated by engineer Billy Shaw, of Soundesign, together with a master copy of the recorded songs. Second prize is a performance at a local musical venue, yet to be determined.

According to Allyson Villars, Executive Director of Youth Services, this second Battle of the Bands celebrates the entrepreneurial nature of all youth represented at this event by young musicians forming bands and expressing their musical inspiration in a business endeavor.

Admission for the general public is $4 and covers refreshments and door prizes. This event is underwritten by The Richards Group.
