We got together at Players Bar and Grill1 in Woodstock. MD from 4-8pm We listened to some amazing musicians and their bands who battled it out for a spot on the WoodstocROC Main Stage at the Taste of Maryland Music & Food Festival on September 20 & 21, 2014. We really, really can't tell you how very impressed we where! We wish each and every one of them could have won!
First Place: Radio Edit
According to what they sent us " We just want to say that we had an AWESOME time at Battle of the Bands. We played alongside many great bands and had so much fun. We met a lot of new people! We won first place in the battle of the bands!! So now we get to have a spot on the main stage at the "WOODSTOC ROC " fundraiser event at Howard County Fairgrounds. September 20-21. Thank you to Player's bar & Grill for hosting the event and thank you to everyone who came out and supported the great cause!"
Second Place: Faceplant
¡Faceplant! is a four-piece punk/thrashy Rock band
If you put My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Iron Maiden, and Korn in a blender, the smoothie would be our ¡Faceplant!
They sent us a very excited message after the show: "2nd in the Battle Of The Bands! We get to play the Woodstock Roc Festival in September!!
#punk #band" Some pretty cool punks if we do say so ourselves!
Third Place: Runaway Shadow
These guys are a Pop/Punk band from Hagerstown, MD, They tell us they received their musical influences from bands like Halestorm, Paramore, and Fit for Rivals. This edgy group of young musicians has been together since 2013 and have busy writing songs for their first album as well as performing out as much as possible.
They started out as a group of friends sharing a love for music "Coming together as a band was just the next logical step." They tell us they are anxious to get their album completed and recorded so that they can share their music with others.
