Bach to Rock Music School Announces Winners of its Second Annual National Battle of the Bands
Talented Port Kids Rock the 2022 Battle of the Bands at 89 North
In a fierce competition at the 2022 Bach To Rock Battle of the Bands, 20 bands went head-to-head at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue, NY on Sunday, June 12th. Hundreds of proud parents, family members and fans came to support and cheer on students from B2R Port Washington. The groups competed at the iconic Long Island venue and rocked the spectacular hotspot.
"The students, who range in age from 8 to 18, and their band coaches worked tirelessly to prepare for this epic, annual event and I’m beyond proud of all the performers," said B2R Port Washington Director, Elana Hayden. “After the past two years with virtually no live performances, we were excited and beyond grateful for the opportunity to perform for a live audience at the fabulous 89 North."
Three seasoned music industry professionals, Wayne Schuster (Blood, Sweat and Tears, Phoebe Snow), Amber Ferrari (Paula Cole, Taylor Dayne), and Carl Pfanstiehl (original B2R Director of Operations) judged the performances. Close to 100 students performed in three divisions - Elementary, Middle, and High School – all rocking 89 North. "While this is a competition, the main point is for the kids to have a great experience, get to perform live - and to have fun and feel like a rock star!” said Elana.
The bands were scored on several criteria including musical ability, technical ability, stage presence, material, creativity, and professionalism. All the competitors study a variety of musical disciplines at Bach to Rock music school on Port Washington Blvd, including music theory, instrument instruction, recording arts, performance arts, voice lessons and band coaching.
