Blog: Battle of the Bands Hits Semifinals

Battle of the Bands and informational update

It's been a while but we have been very busy at 9Lives prodiuing shows and keeping the Gilroy music scence alive.  Over the past few months we have hosted a variety of shows including a couple really great tribute bands and the return of the biggest band to come out of Gilroy, Salmon on July 28th.  There's more great shows on tap and you can view our entire lineup at our website, www.9livesclub.com

Our latest Battle of the Bands has been taking place all summer long and now, after six weeks of first round eliminations and 24 bands competing on stage the competition has been narrowed down to just six.  Starting tonight, August 17th and continuing on August 24th we slim the field down to just three bands that will have a chance to compete for a prize package worth more than $2,500.

This week's three bands are Hell I Feel, Vanishing Affair and Petty Therapy.  Each of these bands has a distinct sound and should be considered a strong contender for the overall title.  Tonight one will advance to the September 15th final round where they will face off against one of the bands performing next week.  These bands include Thirty9fingers, February Zero and Solwave.  If you want to know just how good the local music scene is we'd suggest that you come out and check this competition out the next two Friday nights.  Doors open at 8pm and muisc starts at 9pm.

Don't let the outsiders be the only one's that come to see these bands.  An amazing fact about our audiences is that nearly 90% of the people that come to shows at 9Lives are from outside the Gilroy/San Martin/Morgan Hill area.  That's astounding and actually a bit embarrassing!  It's time for the locals to step up and show that there is support for a venue that produces over 160 shows annually, attracts 400 plus acts annually and that has hosted seven GRAMMY award winners and two Rock N Roll Hall of Fame members.

Come on out to 9Lives, support local music and take in a show.  You will love it!
