The Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds and MH Entertainment bring you the Battle of the Bands QC Saturday, March 20th.

Ten local bands will be battling with quick sets of their music...with the winning band performing at the Mississippi Valley Fair in August.  Yes, one of these bands will open on the grandstand for headlining act.  So one of these rock bands could be opening for Shinedown!

The event is free, but I-Rock 93.5 has a VIP package that you can win.  You'll score yourself a table for 8 to call your own along with a bucket of beer and I-Rock 93.5 swag.'ll be able to join I-Rock 93.5 on stage to introduce either Been There Done That, Monroe or Alborn!  You may have no talent to perform on stage (me neither) but now you can be on the stage to introduce the band at the Battle of the Bands QC.  Register to win below!
