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.

Ricer
Ricer
Ricer are an explosive power trio lead by the sheer force and energy that is their guitarist Ginger Brown. While they can be quiet and introspective at times, this is but the calm before the storm. Featuring a dynamic rythmn section of ‘Stiff Penalty’ on bass and Dave Mead on drums, Ricer assaults the audience with flying shards of molten guitar that sears the senses and leaves you wanting more. This is music that commands your attention, performed with passion - Ricer delivers!
Moon Bums
Moon Bums
“Moon Bums, a funky blues rock group from Augusta, Ga. made up of four members; a guitar player, bassist, and a duo of drummers, aims to bring each and every crowd the most unique blues performance that they have seen in years!”
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.
BarbWired
BarbWired
Founded in 2016 as Sign Of Life, SOL came together as a band to back lead singer Barbara Brumback. As the band went forward into live performing, the band evolved into a high energy rock dance party band, covering many genres from new country to 70’s funk to 80’s 90’s party rock, music from the fifties on through 2018! SOL changed its name this year to BarbWired to better reflect their high energy shows, and is currently out working clubs in the metro Atlanta area every weekend. BarbWired likes to remain current and relevant to get all age groups up and grooving!

STiiLPOiNT
STiiLPOiNT
Ga Music Awards Rock Band of the Year STiiLPOiNT's stellar musicianship, and sophisticated songcraft is only magnified by a vocal range that ignites the microphone. STiiLPOiNT is the sound of a new generation of traditionalists who long for the days when rock n’ roll was raw, uncomplicated and magnetic. With an All Star lineup of infamous underground rock legends, STiiLPOiNT's greatest asset is having the ability to generate an energy and a groove that is, simply put, powerfully seductive. Monstrous guitar riffs, Thunderous rhythm section, Melodic with a razors edge.
New school Rock n Roll done the old school way. Wide open, with a take no prisoners attitude, and the experience and know-how to back it up.
