Battle of the Bands Participants Lit Up the Stage for a Cause Worth Fighting For

At the inaugural ArtWorks Battle of the Bands four local up and coming bands rocked Arlene’s Grocery in support of arts programming for hospitalized children.
 
Aug. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- New York, NY – August 1, 2011 – Last Thursday, July 28th, four up and coming local bands took to the stage for the First ArtWorks Battle of the Bands fundraiser at Arlene’s Grocery. The nearly sold-out club was packed with excited fans waiting to root for their favorites. The bands, Bern and the Brights, Late Cambrian, Life Without Warning, and Keith Paine, each brought their own style and sound to the stage which made for an exciting competition. The event raised over $1,800 for ArtWorks, The Naomi Cohain Foundation to provide children suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and their siblings, access to creative and performing arts programs.

After much deliberation from the panel of celebrity judges including Publisher of Guitar World Magazine, Greg DiBenedetto, Q104.3 On-Air Radio Personality, Maria Milito, Songs Music Publishing Head of A&R Ron Perry, and President of Musinart, Jonathan Rheingold,  Life Without Warning took the title for the night with their edgy guitar riffs and pitch-perfect harmonies.

“We are on cloud nine,” said Zack Kenworthy, guitarist for Life Without Warning.  “We are still in shock and can’t believe it!” The band was awarded complimentary studio time with Bennett Studios, a photo shoot with David Goldman Photography sponsored by Foto Care, a gig at Arlene’s Grocery, gift certificates to Sam Ash Music Stores, and the featured artist spot on TalentSplash.com.
