Pre-Oyster Festival ‘Battle of Bands’ set for Sept. 13
The Urbanna Oyster Festival Foundation Entertainment Committee will hold a “Battle of the Bands” for high school to college-aged musicians in the area at 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 13, on the grounds behind the Urbanna firehouse.
“It should be an all day event and will give the youth in this community an opportunity to showcase their talent for family, friends and peers,” committee head Beth Justice Stewart of the “Sweet Justice” band.
Approximately 10 bands will be chosen from the submissions, and each band has 30 minutes to play. A performance by Sweet Justice will cap the evening’s activities.
There will be professional musicians serving as judges. The winner will receive a paid spot at the Urbanna Oyster Festival, opening for Sweet Justice on Saturday, November 8.
There is a Battle of the Bands registration page on the official Urbanna Oyster Festival website at http://www.urbannaoysterfestival.com.
