Battle of the Bands
Loudoun's annual Battle of the Bands is designed to provide middle school and high school students a safe place to spend a Friday night, while giving local youth bands the opportunity to perform in front of their peers and compete for a chance to win the opportunity to play at Leesburg's own Tally Ho. Winners of the first three battles advance to the finals at the Tally Ho. We have over $900 in cash prizes for our Final Battle winners (1st, 2nd, and fan favorite.) Previous prizes include half a day of studio time, private lessons with professional songwriters, and more!
