Battle of the Bands Benefit Kicks off a New Year for the ETM Associates!

On Thursday, October 4th, the ETM Associates hosted ETM's first-ever "Battle of the Bands", their fall kick-off party at the famed Cutting Room in NYC. Six bands, including an ETM student band, brought down the house in their quest to become the 2007 ETM "Battle of the Bands" Champion! In between sets, comedian host John Mulaney and our special guest judges kept the audience in stitches, and we raffled off prizes such as a special "guest judge" spot, and VIP tickets to see Emeril Live. Ultimately Brooklyn-based Little Grey Girlfriend won the coveted prize: recording time at Indaba Music's studio!

Special thanks to Peter and the staff at the Cutting Room; Indaba Music; The Food Network; the ETM Associates; John Mulaney, guest judges Mike Brown and Josh Boltuch; and all of the bands who participated:

Natural Progression, Lavender Jones and the Dead Giveaways, Jann Klose featuring Chris Marolf and Leah Potteiger, Little Grey Girlfriend, Dan Zaccagnino, and Cheryl B. Engelhardt.
