Battle Of The Bands (update from previous thread)

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by floydbass, Jun 1, 2005.


  1. Well my band actually won the battle of the bands. We are called "Somewhere in the Middle" We play Jazz, Jazz Fusion, and Funk. All the other bands were either Emo bands or Death Metal Screamers. I am totally psyched that we won. I even signed two "groupie's: shirts. Home made "Somewhere in the Middle is for Lovers" shirts. :hyper: :bassist:

  5. Actually the entire audience loved us, they screamed for like 1 minute before we could start to play. Our friends made "Somewhere in the Middle is for lovers" T shirts. And people we "skanking" and dancing while we were playing chamelion. The only people that didn tlike us were the heavy metal kids that were there for the screamers.

  7. Congradulations on the victory. Our band recently was in the New jersey battle of the bands, unfortunately, the judges in the regional finals prefered looks over sound. They had bands moving on becuase they were wearing matching outfits. Also, they prefered screamo over jam bands. A while after the show we saw the score chart and found out that us and the other not so much jam band, but not punk or screamo band came in last place. The croud went crazy because of the decision, but hey, what can you do. Once again, congrats! I'm glad your band along with the genre of music prevailed.
