This year the voting at the Battle was especially tight, according to Richard Young, one of the event organizers.
“It was very tough, especially in the rock/country/pop category because the bands were so diverse,” he said.
Judging was so tight in that category that the third place act, Clint and Kip, missed the cut by one point ……………
Even those who didn’t leave the Battle of the Bands with a victory enjoyed the experience.
Despite coming up just short, Clint Darby of Clint and Kip, had no regrets.
“There were a lot of great bands and it was cool just to be a part of it,” Darby said. “Hopefully we can still get a slot somewhere at Jubilee.”
