Hutch by Design has presented a 3-part music showcase series called Battle of the Bands. The first part was the Pop/R&B edition and the second part was the Hip Hop edition, which both took place at Free Candy in Brooklyn, NY. All the performers who performed at each showcase had their fans vote for them to be in the finale concert that’s in the Summer. Hutch by Design gives artists the opportunity to network with industry executives through a Meet and Greet. The Meet and Greet allows artists to ask any questions to the industry executives to help further their music careers.
Now let’s get to the Hutch by Design’s Battle of the bands experience…
The first part of the Battle of the bands experience took place in February. There were performances by Sillage, a 24-year old poet and lover of music, who is a part of the Street Poets Artistry Collective; Minnie Nicole, who is a Gospel singer and is currently the lead singer on the Praise Team at the United Community Baptist Church; Zengee WRDPCE, who is an American musician/poet/thinker and creative; Jey Gibbs, who is a R&B singer/songwriter from Charleston, SC; Davine, who is a dancehall/reggae artist, and IhniShara, who is a R&B/Soul singer/songwriter, from New Jersey.
All of these performers put on a great show with their different musical styles. It was one big collage of music and art, which fits with the vibes of Free Candy.
