Section 101 was excited to participate in the 4th Annual College Battle of the Bands
. College Battle of Bands works to help and promote the best in emerging student talent from all across the United States. As part of our commitment to Independent Artists, Section 101 was thrilled to be part of their prize package, which would include a free website design, consultation and one year of site hosting for the winner.
Taking place on June 22nd at Echoplex in Los Angeles, CA, seven finalists from each part of the USA (Midwest, Southwest, Southeast, Northeast, Pacific South, Pacific North and one wild card) came together to battle it out for the top spot of National Champion. Beside being crowned the winner of this prominent event, the winner would get amazing prizes and gear from participating companies such as Section 101, Grammy U, Chegg, SESAC, house of Marley, Ernie Ball, O.N.E Coconut Water, Pod Share, Creative Allies, Elfenworks and more.
Each finalist’s performance was terrific, but it was the multi-talented Raquel Rodriguez [check her out on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/rqlrod], who was crowned the winner.
Raquel is graduating from the Jazz Program at USC this month and describes herself as "a little bit of soul, R&B jazz and blues kind of stuff. It's the classic sound that I like."
Congratulations to Raquel and check back to http://section101.com for the upcoming launch of her website!
