Description: The Cove is hosting our first Battle of the bands! BAND WARS! Where 18 bands will battle it out over the course of 9 weeks to have a chance to win the opportunity to go on a Northeast tour. Which will take them to PA, NYC, NJ, CT, and back to the Cove!

There will be 6 First round shows with 3 bands each that one winner will be named each week. From there they will go on to the Semi Final round. Which will consist of 2 weeks 3 bands each. The 2 winners of the semi final rounds will battle it out for the finals with 1 wildcard band. This wildcard band will be a band that shows their best effort but may have been too close to call in one of the previous rounds.

Each Band will have a 45 minute set. Load in will be at 6pm. The Order of the bands for each evening will be determined by pulling the names of the bands out of a hat once the bands have arrived for load in. The First band will go on at 9pm and there will be 15 minute changeovers. The First round will be judged by the following criteria in no particular order:

Promotion, Professionalism, Attendance, and Performance
