2022 ShoreLake Battle of the Bands ends on a High Note

Friday, August 12, 2022

First place: Jamm

What an incredible turnout from the community! Over the course of three nights featuring amazing local musicians and performances, there were over a 1,000 guests who came out to support the bands and ShoreLake Arts. Thank you to all of you for making it a week to remember!

A concert, a competition, a community event for all age groups, a platform to nourish talent, this year's Battle of the Bands was all that and more. The highlights were many, including a beer garden sponsored by Monka Brewing Co., food trucks, and musician Q and A’s on stage with emcee Sasha Cousineau. Of course all of this was capped off with five wonderful performances by such talented local musicians. The future is bright!

Speaking of wonderful performances, the group of seven judges had the difficult task of selecting the winners. Scott Markley from Annex Room Studio presented the 1st place award. 

Congratulations to Jamn! 

They gave the City of Lake Forest Park a stellar performance weaving through their songs, anchored by vivid lyrics and vocals. Undeniably catchy! They are getting $1,500 in cash and a day of recording studio time at the legendary Robert Lang Studios.

And congratulations to the runner-up Rug! E. Pruitt and Jeannie Rak presented the second place award to this band who gave us a powerful performance. They left an everlasting impression in just 15 minutes. Their prize is $1,000 in cash and a performer’s gear package from Mackie including speakers, tripod stands and a pair of dynamic microphones.
