If you're a fan of an awesome Eastern Iowa band, right now you can nominate them to compete in 'Battle of the Bands 2020!'

Last spring, Hazzard County in Downtown Cedar Rapids hosted its first 'Battle of the Bands' competition. 10 local bands/musicians competed for first place, with Tyler Richton & the High Bank Boys coming out on top. I was one of the judges for the event, so believe me when I tell you that there was some serious talent!

It was announced earlier this month that MH Booking & Management Agency will be presenting another Battle of the Bands in 2020. It will take place on April 25th at 3 p.m. and will once again be held at Hazzard County.

Now that we know where and when the event will happen, the big question is WHO? It's up to you to decide! The Facebook page reads:

"Fans please TAG the band name in the event you want nominated to play at the Battle of the Bands and then share the event. Bands who want to be nominated, please share the event on your fan page and ask your fans to nominate you in the event! Deadline for nominations is January 2, 2020, at 5 p.m."

They also note that all genres of music are welcome at the competition.

The winning band will be booked for a paid show at Hazzard County on July 3, 2020, and a paid show at Cedar River Landing in Cedar Rapids (date will be discussed later).
