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.

Conkrete GOD
Conkrete GOD
It's all about the music! It's all about this life. Rough & tough, hard and heavy, Atlanta-based ConKrete God was solidified in early 2017! Their influences range the musical spectrum from Van Halen, to 24-7 Spyz to Mothers Finest.

After their previous band kind of fell apart, Kewl, Auslander, and Prof. kept at it, to put together a balls-to-the-walls rock band. It took awhile to find the right fit, but they soon stumbled upon Denitra. From the first note, they knew she was the one. When Lindsey LeCoda entered the picture, they knew they had something special.
They came together to make music say something worth saying. They wanted it to be hard and moving. They wanted to make music of heart & stone. --Conkrete God
Phillip Michael Parsons
Phillip Michael Parsons
Phillip Michael Parsons has spent the last four years building a fiercely loyal fanbase and the newest members of the “PMP Fam Club” are streaming in from coast to coast since its inception in November 2018 with proud members from 36 states, Canada, Australia, Europe and South America! Parsons plays an active role with his fan base on social media and looks forward to meeting new family members on his most extensive tour yet in 2019. His dynamic, high-energy performances never disappoint when he has entertained crowds of up to 40,000!

Splitting his time between Southern Maryland and Nashville, Parsons developed a consulting relationship with his manager, Julee Ann Seymour when he was just starting his music journey. Seymour insisted that he pay his dues in the music industry on his own before agreeing to sign him to a full-service management contract in August 2018. Smokeshow Entertainment has surrounded Parsons with trusted industry veterans who Seymour has developed professional relationships with since arriving in Nashville 17 years ago. Staying true to her management style, she made the connections possible for Phillip’s breakout single, “Breakin’ My Own Rules”, which was co-written with award-winning hit songwriters Clay Mills III (“Beautiful Mess”), Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean) and Mike Krompass (Smashmouth, Nelly Furtado) and produced by Krompass and Redmond, the multi-platinum production team at 1225 Entertainment. Parsons will be releasing a new album in 2019 with an equally impressive All-Star production team.

Parsons also begins his first nationwide radio tour when “Breakin’ My Own Rules” hits radio stations across America this year with the help of radio industry titan, Larry Pareigis and the team at Nine North Records. Already being added to radio stations in multiple states, Phillip Michael Parsons humbly envisions taking over the world, one radio at a time.
