Rock out this weekend with Mason Music
This is your chance to watch young stars be born. During the Battle Rock Band League Fall 2022 “Battle of the Bands,” 13 student bands, made up of 75 young musicians ages 10-18, compete against each other to see who will walk away as “Best Band.” As usual, a group of local Birmingham celebrities will determine the winners. Local musicians Justin Cross and Philip Blevins of the band Carver Commodore and music producer Les Nuby will be this year’s judges.
“These young musicians always blow me away at the Battle of the Bands. Sometimes you forget you’re watching kids up there on stage. They have a confidence, a swagger and a rock n’ roll attitude that inspires me every time. It’s really special.”Will Mason, CEO & Owner, Mason Music
The entertainment doesn’t stop there. Mason Music’s very own CEO and Owner Will Mason, plus Birmingham Mountain Radio’s “Oh Brother Radio” hosts Will and Reed Lochamy, will be emceeing the rockin’ event presented by Taco Mama and Otey’s Tavern.

We’re ready to watch these talented musicians
Mason Music is all about helping students tune their skills through private lessons in drums, guitar, piano, violin and voice. In 2013, Mason Music’s Rock Band League was formed to give students the opportunity and confidence to rock out on a stage.
“Private lessons are the best way to learn music skills, but a band is where you can put those skills into practice. Our Rock Band League is the perfect structure to teach teamwork, confidence and, of course, music! It’s the program we get the most comments on, and the most common thing we hear from adults is ‘I wish I had this when I was growing up.”Will Mason, CEO & Owner, Mason Music
The students will be heading on stage well prepared—these bands worked hard for 12 weeks with a professional coach. Also, they’ve been able to perform at iconic venues around The Magic City. Now, their practice and talent is culminating in a final show to see which band comes out on top.
Bham, we hope to see you cheering on these rockstars!
