Rockford High School Musicians Win Local Battle of the Bands

battlebandsThe first try was a winner for a quartet of Rockford High School musicians who took top honors in Battle of the Bands. Their band, Tribune, won the competition Friday, February 27 at The Springs Free Methodist Church in Cedar Springs. The event was sponsored by EnGedi Youth Center.

Six bands competed, each playing three songs. Tribune played all originals. The four Rockford High School sophomores have played together for over a year and will be performing at Rockford Lanes on Friday, April 17. Another Rockford band, “Jonny on Fire” finished second in the competition.

This is the inaugural battle of the bands for this particular organization, although there are some others in West Michigan. This is the first competition of any type for Tribune so they were thrilled to come out on top.

The boys have been playing together for 14 months. They first performed publicly at Rockford Dinner Theatre in May 2008 when they did the Stevie Wonder song, Superstition. They performed during the pre-game and half-time of two RHS varsity basketball games during the month of February.
