Ponderosa’s Battle of the Bands 2016 Champion Announced!
April 27, 2016
Ponderosa Lounge is proud to announce this year’s
winner of Battle of the Bands 2016!
The Country music scene has been buzzing this Spring as the ultimate in regional talent came together for the Ponderosa Lounge’s Battle of the Bands 2016! Starting April 7th, the Pacific Northwest’s top Country bands have competed over seven weeks of live head to head music to be crowned 2016’s Battle of the Bands Winner (and to win the $1500 top prize!). This year’s finale was a little different from previous years as the Ponderosa pulled a “wild card” contestant for the finale on May 19th – this meant that instead of two bands competing for the top prize, we had THREE bands duking it out!
Every year, this competition brings together bands, fans, and casual Country music appreciators together to decide who should be crowned the best up-and-coming talent in the Pacific Northwest’s Country music scene. We saw some repeat contestants, and also some brand-new faces! Bands from this year included: Sacred Road, Southern Rain, Yonder Blue, and many more!
After three amazing performances by Kelsey Bales & Sons of Storm, Nash Brothers, and Rekless Kompany, Ponderosa Lounge is proud to announce the 2016 Winner… Rekless Kompany! Rekless Kompany earned the $1500 prize and Ponderosa bragging rights – let’s see those put to good use!
