Wing Shack Presents the 2017 BandWagon Magazine Battle of the Bands

BandWagon Magazine is Northern Colorado's premier independent arts and entertainment magazine. Currently, we distribute 15,000 copies each month and consistently cover national and independent local artists.

For the past 6 years we've held an annual Battle of the Bands where local bands compete for eternal glory and the grand prize of $1,000 and the cover of BandWagon Magazine. Past winners include local bands like Slow Caves, The Burroughs, and Hypnotic Vibes.

This year we are once again expanding our battle out of the Greeley scene and into Ft. Collins. Preliminary rounds will take place 1/26 & 2/9 at the Moxi Theater in Greeley and 2/2 & 2/17 at the Downtown Artery in Ft. Collins. One band from each night will move onto the final round at the Moxi Theater on 3/3.

The battle is scored by a combination of judges and crowd voting. The celebrity judges, composed of local musicians as well as folks affiliated with organizations like BandWagon Magazine, Moxi Theater, The Fort Collins Music District, Mishawaka Amphitheatre, and SpokesBuzz, will be filling out score sheets that award bands for several categories including originality, professionalism, crowd participation and response, and the quality of performance.

  • Choice City Seven

    Choice City Seven

    Soul

    Fresh on the scene, Choice City Seven was formed in 2013 to let loose a sound Fort Collins has not seen in…well, maybe never. With members of 12 Cents for Marvin (Sean Jaster, Phuong Nguyen, and John Giordanengo), Manabi Salsa (Jerremiah Teaque and John G), and local Fort Collins jazz drummer (Logan Doddridge), laying down the rhythm and horns, Chris the Teddy Bear Leck (West Chicago Swing Choir) lays down soulful vocals that will make you jump onto the dance floor. Missing Choice City Seven would be like living with your mother after age 30…just don’t do it.

  • The Caveat

    The Caveat

    Death Metal/Black Metal

    The Caveat is a distillation: it is a thorough, focused effort to refine and augment the greatest aspects of modern extreme music, while sloughing off the limiting vestiges of its previous iterations. Its members (Michael Stancel - Lead Guitar, Kyle Neeley, Guitar, Nik Schafer - Bass, Paul Christiansen - Drums) are motivated by the idea that music, like people, the world and life itself, has an obligation to move forward. With a carefully-crafted tapestry of expression, virtuosity, improvisation and syncopation as its creative language, The Caveat is a singular example of what can be brought to bear at the crossroads of concept and dedication.

  • Hot Sister

    Hot Sister

    Pop Punk

    Hot Sisters is a project formed by three multi-instrumentalists who came to agreement that Rock and Roll needed a new sound. The absence of a physical guitarist goes unnoticed when Wes plugs in the bass guitar to his unique setup that mimics not one, but two guitarists playing alongside a bass. The riff driven hard rock that is Hot Sisters is not complete without the showmanship of Jordan on the drums or the elite vocal talent of Scott, who has the vocals range that many singers can only dream of attaining. Hot Sisters’ sound is loud, heavy, head-banging rock that features vocal harmonies and technical guitar riffs. The musicianship of the band members is apparent when the band is capable of breaking out the acoustics and changing the overall vibe in a venue.
