Location

Logansport,

June 12, 1971. Battle Of The Bands at the Logansport Mall. First place winner was NYR, second place was The Declared Brass. I don’t remember who was third place, I think Machine was fourth place. Machine later opened for Styx at the Fitch’s Glen festival in 1974. My group Celebrate played in the Battle, we were pretty green and didn’t place but it was a good start. We recorded a demo in 1971 also. Other groups in the Battle included Churchyard, they did a fine job.

The Logansport Mall featured rock bands off and on but never hosted another Battle. One of the unique things about the Battle is that most of the groups normally played for teenagers, after-game dances, etc. At the Battle it was free to all, so people of all ages could come to the Mall and see the groups; it was quite a big event at the time and I’m sorry I don’t have more photos.
