Bellaire Men's Club holds annual Battle of the Bands
Members of the Bellaire Men's Club (BMC) leadership team recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of Battle of the Bands, the group's largest charity project.
Presented by Tradition Bank, the event is the largest high school battle of the bands charity concert in the state and remains a place for youth in the greater Houston area to showcase talent.
"It is amazing to see what has become of the charity concert," Steven Womack, a CPA with Ernst and Young and BMC board member, stated in a press release. "We're still getting donations in for this year and since the beginning, we've raised nearly $20,000 for local charities."
All ticket sales went to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Dawson High School students Austin Rominger, Geoff Llyod, Holden Rominger and Josh Gibbs made up the winning band, the Castaways. The group received studio time at SugarHill Recording Studios.
Other participants included Harris Thornton, Keeli Armitage, Brianna Raymond and Jack Thornton of Das Wompus; Marion Nelson, Micah Green and Dalton Cramer of Catharsis; Austin McGinnis, John Wall, Ryan Fulghum and Jake Irr of Triple5Seven; and Kyle Somers, Jack Riggs, Haley Abramson, Brian Cotton and Cade Kennedy of There's a Fighter in Me.
Students spent more than four months preparing for the event.
Applications for the 11th annual battle of the bands will be accepted in March 2013.
