Good-day, kittens and dawgs! July 2016 is history…well almost history. The dog days of summer continue with a new month and we’re not out of the woods yet . Nothing diverts your attention like music and we need our mind off the heart. It’s not only the start of a new month, but it’s time for another edition of Battle of the Bands.
I’m using another song penned by American song writer in his basement and Boston band founder, Tom Scholz. Wikipedia says Peace of Mind is about the people Scholz worked with at Polaroid Corporation. The song peaked 38 on the Billboard Top 100 charts in 1977.
A Canadian band, Moxy Fruvous covered Boston’s classic hit, but changed the lyrics, which I didn’t care much for and then Stryper recorded it in 2009 with Tom Schloz playing guitar that I liked quite a bit; but that being said I felt this band might be an instant winner.
In this competition (Scholz didn’t care about competition), but it’s BoTB baby and I’m sharing two unknowns (to me) covering this song. First up is the three-piece band out of south eastern Pennsylvania who are known for their classic to modern rock, metal, punk, country, pop, and even some original stuff. I present to you, Half Past Seven!
Next is a four member metal/rock group from Portland, Oregon called, Stonecreep.
Do you know which band you like the best? Are you going with Half Past Seven or Stonecreep? Please cast your vote in comments and if you want, tell me why you picked your artist.
I’ll share my pick next week along with the results, so be sure to come back to see who wins this round of BoTB. Meanwhile, the fun continues with more epic battles underway below.
