Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the August 15th showdown.
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.
♫ Another international blues/rock contest. ♫
With two strong contenders, I was expecting another close battle, but this time, there’s a clear winner. It was going back and forth for the first few days, then Laith started picking up steam. Despite one late vote for Slow Feet, they couldn’t quite catch up. Here’s how it turned out:
Arlee, Cathy, Chris, J. Gi, Larry, Mike, Myke, Pat, Stephen
Angel Stew, Birgit, C.W. Martin, Cherdo, Chrys, Janie, John, Mary, Michele, Robin, Shady, Yolanda
Either way, my vote won’t make a difference. Several people mentioned it was tough to choose and it was for me as well. Laith’s power vocals and guitar prowess blew me away. Slow Feet’s bluesy arrangement, vocals and musicianship were equally riveting. After listening to each several times, it finally came down to which one triggered the more intense emotional response. Without a doubt, that would be Slow Feet. Their version gave me chills and I’m completely besotted!
Come back here on Sept. 5 (Question of the Month) for more about music and emotions.
and the winner is:
