The place to be last night, Thursday, was the Algoma University Speakeasy. Seven bands competed in the Battle of the Bands and it proved to be a spectacular night for all involved.
First prize of $400 went to Gnaeus, second prize of $200 went to Long Shot and third prize of $100 went to The Bear Hunters. Meghan Rix, the Support Services Assistant stated that because of the great success of this endeavor, the Battle might be an ongoing thing.
Along with the Battle, the Speakeasy also has Karaoke, Acoustic jam night, Themed Thursday pub night, live bands, comedy nights, cultural events, including EID dinner, J-Night, and Brazilian night. There is something for everyone.
The enclosed video has short snippets of all the bands. The full videos will be uploaded to youtube within the next couple of days. Go to youtube and type in everything sault. The performing bands will be there.
