The final show of Battle of the Bands is Sunday, winner gets $1,000!

Sunday, December 9th is the final show of the Battle of the Bands at the Capitol Cider House. Four bands will play, but only one will win $1,000! YOU get to vote for the winner… but only if you show up!

1-4pm, December 9th at Capitol Cider House (3930 Georgia Avenue NW)

We’ve had eight bands perform so far, and now there are four left. Come out to grab some tasty BBQ, enjoy a cider, and enjoy the free music!

Here’s the line-up for the finale, with 7th Street Rockers starting off at 1pm!

7th Street Rockers

A two-man band comprised of Eric Emmanuel Smith on vocals and David Grinspoon on guitar, their band name gives them strong local preference! (The fact that David is a published astrobiologist certainly makes this geek happy, too!) Check out a track on Soundcloud: "Jolene."

Dan Rosenbush

Daniel Rosenbush is a singer-songwriter and story-teller through song hailing from the north lands of Minnesota. His folk-rock, melody driven, story songs will keep you tapping your feet and humming along all afternoon. Dan has a great voice and sound, and is a great addition to the Bandstand. He plays rock, pop and rock. I listened to him on Spotify and got hooked. Check him out on Facebook and listen to him on Bandcamp.

The Fuss

The Fuss is a dynamic ska, rocksteady, and early reggae band from Washington, D.C. Their sound pays tribute to the music of 1960’s Jamaica and the British Mod scene, while putting modern slant on these timeless styles. The group is comprised of 3-part female harmonies, a 3-piece horn section, and 4-piece rhythm section. Since the band formed in 2014 and they’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage with bands such as The Skatalites, The Toasters, The Pietasters, Eastern Standard Time, The Interrupters, Save Ferris, Steady 45’s, and many more.
