Mark your calendars now for an epic, monster first annual Battle of the Bands contest, sponsored by Czech and Slovak Sokol MN, CSCC and Czech & Slovak School Twin Cities. The competition kicks off at 7:30 p.m., April 29, 2017 at the C.S.P.S. Hall. Bring a helmet!
Be sure to see four amazing show bands, each generously offering both their time and talent to astound the crowd as well as raise money for the fire escape fund. Who are these warriors you ask? There will be something for every age and every taste. SlovCzech, banging out great folk rock tunes. Rocket Appliances, Americana experts. Lolo’s Ghost, purveyors of smooth, smooth R&B.
Each of our contestants will perform a strong 30-40 minute set, aiming to gain the crowd’s favor and votes and emerge Champions of the Battle. Vote with your cheers AND your wallets! At the conclusion of the night the band with the highest contribution total will be declared the winner, all proceeds to go towards construction of our new fire escape. A $10 admission donation is suggested.
But there’s more! While the music plays, everyone can also play Beer Trivia, participate in a silent auction of great items, join in sing-a-longs, or even learn a new line dance led by Christopher Yeager. Surprise door prizes and contests for young and old. And of course refreshments available for purchase, from full dinners to pastries fresh from our kitchen. Plus a cash bar (naturally!)
Bring your family! Bring your friends! Bring your boss (if you dare!) Join us on April 29th for a fundraising night of fun, friendly competition, perhaps some music new to your tastes. Be a part of Twin Cities history!
Showtime is 7:30 sharp. Bring those dancing shoes and be at the C.S.P.S. Hall ready to hear some great professional musicians battle for ultimate bragging rights!
