Battle of the Bands
One of the city’s top Battle of the Bands events returns to the island this month giving budding musos the chance to showcase their talents and win a place in the final, which will open the show for Macy Gray, who’s coming to town in December.
Qualification rounds and the semi-finals are scheduled to take place at Rocky’s Café (formerly Rock Bottom Café) over three Fridays starting from November 9.
Competing bands will be split into two groups, with each group performing on the 9th and 16th and a total of five being selected from each group to go through to the semis on the 30th. Just four acts will be bumped up to the finals.
A fifth wild card band will get the chance to head to the finals via an online vote and the grand finale will take place on Friday December 7, at Coral Bay before the Grammy Award-winning singer Macy Gray takes to the stage.
Tickets for the first three nights are BD5 per person, inclusive of a welcome drink, and are available at the door or in advance at Rocky’s Café, Warbler, Buffalo, Club F1, Enigma, Dublin, Virgin Megastore and Great Deli Café (Saar and Amwaj).Bands interested in participating in this event can send over an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
