SILENT AUCTION ITEMS STILL NEEDED!

Bring your friends, family and colleagues for this fabulous night of live entertainment and networking. We’ll have a great lineup of bands to provide you with an evening of music and fun!  And the key is that a member of each band must be tied to the p&c industry so it will be people you know up there on stage playing their hearts out!

And to make this event even better, this year we're 'banding' together with the Edmonton Insurance Association to battle hunger. The EIA Annual Food Bank Drive Kickoff event is combining with the Battle of the Bands to 'Band Together to Battle Hunger'. All proceeds from this event will go to the Edmonton Food Bank.

Last year's winner, Marisa West from Wawanesa Mutual Insurance will be returning to close the show, Rattpoision.

"Leather bound and hairspray heavy, Rattpoison will resurrect the best of the 80’s, and kick it full metal force back to life! With screaming solos, pounding bass and 40 proof vocals so strong, you’re bangover will last for days. Tighter than your spandex, and larger than your backcomb, this cover band puts the Glam in Rock and the Hair in Metal!"

Pat Hall from Access Insurance Group is coming with, Backpages.

"Backpages was formed in the early 1980’s by 4 friends who met playing hockeyThose 4 friends remain the nucleus of the band today, playing the songs that they grew up from the 1960’s through to 2000. Those songs include artists such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eagles and many more."

Rob Stevenson with Armour Insurance will be performing with, RC Sindicate.

"RC Sindicate is a collection of great minds, and a fusion of musical genres to please the ears. This eight piece Edmonton based band‘s self-proclaimed funk, hip-hop, house, ska, dance, reggae and rock influences bring a unique dynamic to their writing and performances. "RC" Stands for River City, and Sindicate describes the syndication of egos and music each member brings to bthe band. Through many changes and clashes the band has evolved to what is now a powerful evolution of musical collaborates. As one of the only full piece hip-hop rock bands in Alberta, RC Sindicate is ready to make their mark on the music industry."

David Sorensen from the Superintendent Office will be performing with his son and friends, Homemade Psycho.

"The band Homemade Psycho is Cooper Walsh, Brodie Walsh and Ty Calder. Cooper is the lead singer and bass player. He is 13 years old and has been singing for 4 years, although the electric bass is new to him he played double bass for 5 years as a warm up . Brodie is 15 years old and has been playing guitar for 4 years.  Ty is 13 and has been playing drums for 4 years. All of the boys take private lessons for their individual instruments and meet weekly as a band to rehearse.  They met 3 years ago in a summer rock band camp and have been playing together ever since.

The boys from Homemade Psycho like to play fast and loud and cover bands like Foo Fighters and Green Day. To date they have written 5 original songs and are currently working on more. They have played many shows for people of all ages including Futurefest through Visionary College, St. Albert Pride Festival, St. Albert Children’s Festival, and gigs at the Rec Room. "
