It’s finally 2017 and time to gear up for #SBCANNIPARTY13! This year, we’ve offered Michigan musicians the opportunity to audition, à la Battle of the Bands, for a paid gig opening the show on April 29th, 2017 at the biggest party Bellaire has ever seen!
For 7 Sundays this spring, bands will take the pub stage three at a time to show off their skills. Each band will play three songs in front of a live audience and our panel of celebrity judges. Each band will play a total of three songs (one song must be original) and will be evaluated on their stage presence, “tightness,” original song, and overall party “fit.” The band(s) with the highest overall score will move on to one of two semi-final rounds. A final battle will be held on Sunday, April 2nd.
What’s a battle without an audience? Make your way to the pub on any of the Sundays listed below to show your support for local music, help us find our #SBCANNIPARTY13 opening act, and enjoy a beer or glass of Starcut Ciders on a Sunday evening in Bellaire. It’s that simple!
CONGRATULATIONS to our first ever Battle of the Bands winner, Benjaman James. Our runner up, Act Casual, will be playing at the Anni Party Pre Party (now sold out). Benjaman James will take the mainstage at 4:00 pm.
