With COVID restrictions on live events, we decided not only to go ahead with a Battle of the Bands but to make it a first for an interstate Battle with some other Bach to Rocks around the US!

This January, our students from B2R Redmond, Washington, will also compete with B2R Tanasbourne, Oregon, and B2R Alpharetta, Georgia in an epic virtual battle!

Bands will be pre-recorded, but the feedback will be live and entertaining with judging in real time.
