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.

Cure My Enemy
Cure My Enemy
Who we are defines our music. Our beliefs and creativity come together to exalt deep grooves and hints of raw spirituality derived from our roots in the contemplative Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, and the sidewalk currents of Atlanta, Georgia. Thick head-bobbing drums command the movement. Original unique uses of guitar and bass underlie emotion that is expressed in people's lives. The vocals wrap the music up in an outpour of soulful conclusion bringing realization of who we are as people existing in the world. Groove. Passion. Deity. Love. We hit where the soul is with City Groove and Rural Grit.
Midnight Express
Steven Phillips and the Midnight Express is a group of musicians that have come together and formed one of the best Southern country rock bands you've seen in a long time. Songs such as Lightning Road and Brayton Mountain that are getting high ratings. we have worked with Shooter Jennings, The Kentucky Head Hunters , Love and Theft, waymore's Outlaws, Diamond Rio just to name a few. Played the Georgia Theatre, Smoky Mountain for Center for Performing Arts in Franklin North Carolina, Woodstock summer concert series, The Daisy Festival, And some places we would be ashamed to mention.
