That’s right, the Big Red Band Boosters of the Souderton Area School District sponsor a “Battle of the Bands” this Saturday.

“We’re having five acts play from the high school, and one special guest: a professional band from Lancaster called ‘Kingsfoil’,” said band coach Matt Fonda, who’s also a guitarist for The Classic.

The five local bands are called Armory Infirmary, Killing Helen, Mary Rush, Mac’s No. 13, and End_Scene.exe.

Each band will feature at least one member currently enrolled at Souderton Area High School, and each will perform for approximately 20 minutes, Fonda said.

The doors to the Souderton Area High School’s auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m. for the Battle, and music provided by the five amateur bands will begin at 7 p.m.

“All of the proceeds will either go towards the rewards: there’s a $50 prize for the first place band and $25 for the second and third, and the rest is going towards the music program,” Fonda said.

Tickets are $5 each and refreshments will be available for purchase.
