Three Campbell River groups swept the Battle Of The Bands in Courtenay.

Battle of the Bands is a competition held at Simms Millenium Park. The contestants were each allowed a three-song set (the first of which would not be judged and served as a warm-up song), and were judged by a panel of six people.

They were judged on originality, stage presence and skill. Campbell River made its presence unequivocally known by taking the top three places.

Who Is Barbosa, a group of talented teens took first place. The foursome won the grand prize of three days at the Dove Creek recording studio and airtime for their upcoming single (from the sessions) on JetFM.

Rise With The Falling, a band from Timberline Secondary, took second place earning a $350 gift card for Long & McQuade.

Last, but not least, Warriors Of Love another group of teens took third place and won a $150 gift card also to Long $ McQuade. All in all, it’s fair to say, Campbell River took Courtenay by a landslide.
