The Battle of the Bands is the annual competition for rock bands from Anne Arundel County high schools. Every high school in the county is invited to send their best rock band to Maryland Hall For The Creative Arts each January, to compete in front of judges who are professionals in the music industry. All of the proceeds from this event go to the music departments of the top 4 bands. We also recognize the best individual musicians and overall performance (stage presence) by a band.
Founded in 1999, the Anne Arundel County High School Battle of the Bands has grown into the largest event of its kind in the entire country. All proceeds from the event are donated to the winning bands’ school music departments. To date, over $100,000 has been raised.
The event relies heavily upon the support of local businesses. They are always searching for financial support, as well as in-kind donations. For more information, please contact Nancy Almgren at HiHat11@aol.com
