The Battle of the Bands (for middle school students), presented by Bandwagon and the Aloha Angels program, wrapped up a school year of work by students under the Adopt-a-Band program, administered by the Aloha Angels and Bandwagon Music Center.

Jeremy Hartshorn of Bandwagon praised all of the students for their courage in taking the stage before an enthusiastic audience at the Kauai Christian Fellowship theater, the students coming together under the restriction of not having played with each other prior to this year’s program.

This year’s field included eight groups ranging from the Hanalei School to Waimea Canyon Middle School, an increase from the three groups in 2018.

Guests were treated to offerings of hot dogs, pizza and Auntie M’s pies for enjoying outside the theater, and between sets. The Bandwagon van was also plugged in and ready to rock.
