Battle of the Bands
Battle of the Bands
Battle of the Bands is an evening dedicated to local and regional musicians, aspiring and professionals alike, giving them the opportunity to take our stage and present their performance and songwriting talents to an audience comprised of people who truly appreciate great bands, original music and live performances.  

The Battle of the Bands, is an event for musicians presenting all musical genres. Bands are typically comprised of 2-6 musicians. There are no age limitations, but all those taking MadLife’s stage should be skilled musicians. We encourage featured bands to perform original music, although that is not an absolute requirement.

MadLife typically features 5-7 bands for each Battle of the Bands event. Each band is provided 5 minutes to set up their gear and 15-20 minutes to perform their set, depending on the set time defined each night at MadLife. Bands are free to play as many songs as they like, as long as their set does not exceed the set time for the evening. The specific length of the set will be defined by MadLife the evening of the show, based upon how many Bands are performing that night.

After all participants have performed their sets, MadLife engineers will score the performances of each band based on audience applause. Audience applause levels will be measured by MadLife engineers utilizing a decibel (sound pressure level) meter. In addition, a panel of judges selected by MadLife will also rank the bands and award scores.

The audience scores and the MadLife judges’ scores will be added to determine the top 3 scoring bands for the night, and those bands will be deemed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize winners for that bi-weekly round.  Those top 3 bands will be invited to return to MadLife for our Battle of the Bands Final Competition. Bands not winning one of the top 3 positions in a bi-weekly competition may return to compete in future bi-weekly competitions.
Cherokee Voodoo
Cherokee Voodoo
Cherokee Voodoo consist of Jon Adams on vocals, Jon Paul Hodges on guitar, Adam Smith on bass, Travis Gay on drums. The group came together less than a year ago and began creating their own original music. What has risen from their short time together is a musical concoction that almost defies labels and genres. With influences ranging the entire rock spectrum, it's something you've got to experience for yourself.
Free Hat
Free Hat
Free Hat formed at Georgia Tech in early 2017 by guitarists Jonathan Zalzman and Niko Maheras and bassist Taylor Nichols. The trio found a similar passion in shred, putting a focus heavy riffs and groovy jams. When drummer Joe Szwelnis was added to the mix in October 2017 the band was ready to take a big step forward. Taking inspiration from STS9 to Periphery to Miles Davis, Free Hat plays fearlessly with an infectious passion for the music they play.
Newfaze
Newfaze
Newfaze is a progressive/alternative rock band from Holly Springs, NC. Young musicians, Cameron Pacileo and Garrett Dayton work together to create a new form of rock with progressive rhythms and psychedelic leads. With Ethan Pacileo rocking quick and groovy drum beats, Newfaze is a fun and enjoyable experience to see live.

Formed in August, 2016, Newfaze has recorded their own EP including the hit-single "Fix". Right now they are in the process of recording and releasing their first independent studio album, planning to be released on June 1st 2018. Newfaze has played shows delivering high-energy to the audience including The Cave in Chapel Hill, Deep South The Bar, and The Pour House in Raleigh, all while growing their fanbase.
