Results for Battle of the Bands: The Lancers Band is Victorious!

The results weren't dramatic. The winners won by a landslide which was nearly a shutout. However, there were still a lot of surprises. A contest pitting an Australian Army Band against a hip hop band with a song which I felt was somewhat obscure I did not expect the turn out.

This battle of the band had more page views then both of my Battle of the Bands contest in October had combined. The votes and comments were up as well!

The results..drum roll..

One abstention who would rather have world peace and less people dying in wars. Which I think everyone would like!

The winner was The Lancer Band 16 to one! Yes the pros of Hip Hop in The Herd were soundly defeated by the Australian Army Lancer Band. An outstanding job by those young woman and men! I would like to thank them for the job they do for their Country and way to represent your army!

The Lancers has a proud history dating back to 1891! The versatile band can entertain as a jazz or rock outfit. However, the musicians can perform as a Military Marching Band, a concert band, or as a wind or brass quartet. You can discover more about  The Lancer Band at their facebook page.

The Lancer Band won and to celebrate here is some more music!

                                                        "I Am Australian"

A different side of the group with "Brass Machine"

A little jazz with "Orange Colored Sky"

Congratulations to The Lancers! Thanks for visiting, thanks for voting! I will be back on the 15th with a new Battle of the Bands.  I will be back sooner with a new post!

That's a relief, because drama can get you blacklisted. :)

I'm not surprised how this turned out. With a different audience this could have gone the other way.

What a lovely pick for a Battle, Mike! I'm sorry I missed the voting... But now that I'm back in the land of reliable internet connections, I'll check out more of these two bands (unfamiliar to me until today)—they sound worth exploring :)

Thanks for voting on my own Battle earlier this week :) I'll post results in a bit.
