The Loafer team was proud to host our 1st Annual Battle of the Bands event!
The event took place at OT’s Sports & Social in Johnson City, TN on July 5, 2019 at 7PM. There was a $5 cover charge and all proceeds are going to our local Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Our top five bands were selected from an enormous amount of entries. The lineup was announced by people’s choice on a voting scale through Facebook. The band with the most votes played last. Our lineup played as follows: Mad Flavor, Puddles of Plastic, Radio Riott, Killing Merci, and T-Minus Glory. Each band played three songs and at least one original in front of a panel of five judges – John Holder, Anita King, Zach Higgins, Maria True, and David Russell.
By the end of the night as the winners were waiting to be announced, two of our bands, Puddles of Plastic and T-Minus Glory had the most points. It was a very close call and by just ONE point, T-Minus Glory were announced as this year’s Battle of the Bands WINNERS and the crowd went wild! Thank you to OT’s Sports & Social for providing the venue, Honeycutt Music for providing the PA system, our judges, the amazing bands, and the crowd. We appreciate all of you!
