Black Sheep's Battle of the Bands is Back

The Black Sheep Cafe is currently looking for high school and college-aged bands or musicians to participate in their yearly battle of the bands competition. The competition will take place at Black Sheep on October 14th and, like years past, there will be two winners chosen. The winner chosen by the judges will receive a free demo recording session at Springfield's Southtown Sound. The crowd will also choose a favorite that will be given a slot in a future big show at Black Sheep. Black Sheep's Facebook event said that this winner could possibly be given a spot in their holiday show. 

If you are in a band and are interested in competing or have any leads on bands that should compete contact Black Sheep at or give them a call at 217-691-8991. Check out the official flier below!
