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.

Public Mind
Public Mind
Public mind began back in 2012 as a project of curiosity and a passion for the truth. Guitarist and Singer/Songwriter, Stephen Burn had been writing songs about current events and the shift in human consciousness that was occurring. Over the coming years many musicians came and went. But Public Mind continued on and In late 2017, Nick Padgett joined on drums, adding a heavier element to the band's sound, and marking a new era. Finally in August of 2018, Stephen's long time friend and band mate, Trey Deer joined on Bass guitar further expanding the band's sound and capabilities.
Andante
Andante
Andante is a Hampton, GA based Latin Rock band. They got together on 2001 in Puerto Rico where they played local clubs including the Hard Rock Café of San Juan. Served as opening acts for groups like SAGA, RATT, Faster Pussycat and L.A. Guns. Their influences run from Santana, Mana, Jimmy Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Fates Warning and Rancid. Their music is a mix of Ska, Alternative, Punk and of course a lot of Guitar Rock. Their songs are in Spanish. Andante is composed by Miguel on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Martin on Lead Guitar, Raul on Bass and Tony on Drums.
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.
