The Battle of the Bands is a throwback to the days before file-sharing. But the concept -- bands offered in both a showcase and a competition setting -- is still one of the best ways to hear (and then judge) an act. You get a live show and the ability to indulge in some schadenfreude. Now, with the support of Dunkin' Donuts (!!), the Coral Springs Council of Executive Officers presents the first Coral Springs Battle of the Bands at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
Each participating high school has the opportunity to showcase two bands, with a line-up including The Fleet, Leave It 2 Us, Kaboozle and Impulse. Mindy Lang of Majic 102.7 is acting as event emcee, along with a slew of co-host celebrity judges: Vinnie Rebecca of Style Entertainment, Richard Sality of Coral Spring's School of Rock, and Denny Artache of Iron Butterfly (truth be told, he was a temporary band member in 1993 -- but that means dude knows his psychedelica).
