WEST CALDWELL, NJ - Eight bands, fifteen minutes, only two prizes - it is the James Caldwell High School (JCHS) Battle of the Bands! Talented musicians, representing eight local bands from Caldwell-West Caldwell and several neighboring towns, will come together on Friday, May 30, for the JCHS Music & More Booster Club's first Battle of the Bands.

Each of the participating bands, including Faux Johnny, Fillit Mignin, GNGR, No Noise, Sideryder, Small Victories, The Subcultures and The Wut, will play for 15 minutes, performing original songs  and/or cover songs. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7:00 p.m. A panel of judges representing local music-related businesses will score each band on musical ability, stage presence and crowd response.
