The Akron Area YMCA is calling on local bands to get loud, get creative and get ready to rock the house.
On March 2, the Riverfront and Firestone Park YMCAs will host the Battle of the Bands event at Cuyahoga Falls High School to benefit the Partners With Youth Annual Giving Campaign.
“This is a great opportunity for young bands to build confidence in not only their sound, but also themselves,” said Riverfront YMCA Properties Manager Randy Keen in a news release. “It’s all about getting out there, taking on a challenge and most of all having fun.”
This annual event includes bands of all ages and styles and is a great way to perform on stage, hear live, local music all while supporting a great cause. Pre-sale tickets are available for $5 at the Firestone and Riverfront YMCAs until the day of the battle. Tickets will be on sale at the door for $6. Your Battle of the Bands ticket includes a special performance from The Michael Weber Show.
Bands will play for an opportunity to win prizes and impress attendees with their dedication to music. The top three bands will get the chance to play at the Akron Marathon on Sept. 28, 2013.
The battle begins at 3 p.m. at the Cuyahoga Falls High School Auditorium located on 2300 4th St. in Cuyahoga Falls and will continue until the final chord is played at 10 p.m.
