The 2019 Battle of the Bands competition is over during the Winter season.

Check back in May of 2020 to apply.

Thanks to everyone that participated this year. It was a blast!

Sincerely, The KELC Event Team


FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, our Food Truck Rallies hosted a Battle of the Bands competition during the Summer of 2019.


The performances took place during our Sunday Brunch events throughout July and August.

Two bands performed each Sunday. The winner is rewarded with a contract to perform at New Years Fest 2019, and each performer is compensated with a food certificate at the event they performed at.


Voting opportunities will be found on our Food Truck Rally Facebook Page found through the icon below. 

Did you miss out on a Sunday Brunch and not get to hear the competitors for that week? Don't you worry! On top of the fantastic live performances that will take place, the bands will be required to submit a video and/or music sample as they apply. The music will then be uploaded to our Facebook page following their performance and you'll be able to listen to what you missed.

The 2019 Battle of the Bands Winner is...

Congratulations to Ada LeAnn for showing off her exceptional vocal skills during her performance at one of the Food Truck Sunday Brunches! She may be 14 but after you hear her vocals you may not believe it. Ada showed off her incredible voice at the Battle of the Bands competition this past summer and won. She won the chance to sing at New Year's Fest and boy does she deserve this. Ada performs covers - mostly country, modern or classic. She is also a song writer and is scheduling the release this fall of her original music. Click her photo to visit her website and here clips of her performing.
