Rock -n- Roll
Battle of the Bands!!!
The Results Are In
It was a great night of music and fun with six bands that are all equally
good in their own right. The judges had a tough job ahead of them as each
band fit in a slightly different slice of the Rock genre. Here are the
results of the judges scoring.
The results of the battle were as follows:
- AM Project
- The Feathers
Thank You to everyone involved in the show and all the fans that came out
to cheer their favorite band on. If you didn't make it to the show, below

Skye - San Jose
The night kicked off with Skye, an all-girl pop/rock band from San Jose, who played
4 four songs while dancing playfully on the stage. At the end of their set they
threw themselves on the stage with their legs kicking in the air.
AM Project - San Jose
Next up was a four-piece rock band from San Jose,
AM Project, who got the crowd going. Very good all around this
band got the energy meter moving up for the night.
Timmy - San Jose
Third up for the night was four-member rock band from San Jose, Timmy, who
picked up where AM Project left off and got the crowd going even more with
their classic rock sound. The crowd kept cheering for Timmy to play even
more after their set was over.
The Feathers - San Jose
Up fourth were relative new-comers, The Feathers...another all-girl rock band from San Jose.
The Feathers have a good raw rock -n- roll sound whose singer sometimes sounds a little like
Deborah Harry at times.
Nomen (aka: Ingsoc) - Santa Clara & San Luis Obispo
The fifth band of the night was Nomen, who are primarily out of Santa Clara. Nomen rocked the
stage hard and loud.
Dragwater - San Luis Obispo & San Jose
The last band of the night, Dragwater, came all the way up from San Luis Obispo for their
first Bay Area appearance. Despite the long drive on a Sunday night, this band still had
good fan turnout. Dragwater definitely had a good stage precense and light show as well as
some really good hard driving rock.
Here are just a few of the lucky audience members to win prizes in our
between set raffles...prizes being awarded by Pacman himself.
