"It has been enormously gratifying to see our Battle of the Bands become such a festival hit,” said producing director, Kelly, owner of Ken Kelly Productions. “It’s all about giving emerging and outstanding young talent from around the Bay Area a chance to do what all performers love to do: perform in front of a live audience. We’ll have some of our favorite acts back again along with some new talent that we've discovered over the past year.”

Two bands will play each day with performances running from 3 pm to 5 pm on the Safeway Family Stage in the Bank of America parking lot at 620 Main Street.

Special gratitude and thanks to Ken Kelly of Ken Kelly Productions for making this spectacular extravaganza a reality. BRAVO!!! Visit www.kenkellyproductions.com.
