On Friday June 10 the annual Battle of the Bands, hosted by SpartaArts, was held in Sparta High School’s new auditorium. Admission was free and the event opened to the public. The sound check was provided by AS Music Group. Finding Wilson, last year’s Battle of the Band winner, opened the venue; followed by Fusion, Something About January, F.I.R.E, and Different Perspective. Different Perspective left the crowd on their feet, and took home the first place prize.
