Weekdays On The Job 10:00am-3:00pm

Battle At The Alley continued with more live music. Next year, please don't miss all this great local talent.

A Saturday well spent is what I call it.  We had so much fun in Aiken on Saturday night.  The Aiken County Veterans Council hosted the Battle At The Alley.  It was a fundraiser to support local veterans in the CSRA.

Not only was it a perfect weather night, The music was great.  Restaurants and bars in The Alley were also offering discounts and specials to help raise money for The Veterans Council! Savage Craft Ale Works donated 50% of all proceeds.  Mellow Mushroom donated 10% of sales from the whole day and Tailgate Tavern donated $1 for every beer sold.  

In The Battle of the Bands, each band and singer took their turn and played a set of their best music.  A vote station was set up and each dollar donated was 1 vote for the band or artist.

Bands That Were in The Battle

  • 8-Track
  • The Mason Jars
  • Savannah Sunday
  • Traces Of Our Youth
  • Roks

The winners are… 1st place went to 8 track, 2nd place went to Savannah Sunday, and 3rd place went to Roks.  All of these guys and girls did an amazing job and it was a close battle for sure.

Meet the Winners

According to the Aiken County Veterans Web Site, they live by this mission:

“Serving as a unified federation of veteran service organizations, civic associations and the local community, we will seek to promote the goals and objectives of all veteran organizations for the common good; foster and support the exchange of information and ideas among all veteran oriented organizations; address issues related to the active and veteran personnel of all the uniformed services, as well as their dependents and survivors in Aiken county.”
