Windham High’s Battle of the Bands ’07

I was asked to be a judge in the Windham High School Battle of the Bands, the 2007 edition. It was a fun and difficult task to rate the artists, not because they were hard on the ears….quite the opposite. The 7 acts proved to be quite a challenge for myself and the 2 other judges (Kelly Savoie & Gabriel Stalnaker). The artists were (in order of appearance): Looked, Vincero, Restless Souls, the Whiskers, This City Never Sleeps, Tim Roxy and Matador. Blending many styles together with a ferocious rock theme as a foundation, the large crowd…(man, was I impressed with the support by fellow classmates and friends) was treated to a night that was a true BATTLE of good bands. In the end, the rough, raw sound of RESTLESS SOULS took home the $200 prize with a groovy edged MATADOR taking in $100 for the runner up. All participants should walk proud for the efforts and sounds that put forth on this fine night in April. Thanks to the WHS PAC for sponsoring this event as well as Charter Communications, Dillion Kearns, Jay Hernandez and the host for the evening, Bryce Monahan.
