Putting this event together (in just three months) we’ve experienced the rewards of local entrepreneurship! Our communities may exist miles apart, but they are connected by people who embrace the challenge of redefining ‘possible’, especially when it’s for the community! This event celebrates the entrepreneurship, the expertise, and the compassionate spirit of many people from different communities who’ve come together as one with the desire to create a musical venue for younger musicians.

Inspired by Andes Fire Chief Joe Berghammer who wanted young people to have their own event this summer, the Andes ‘Battle of the Bands’ is sponsored by The Andes Fire Department and Auxiliary, WIOX Radio, Andes Works!, Kevin Prior Carpentry, and with support from The MARK Project.
