The Redondo Beach Police Department is doing it again.  Something different, fun, and FREE to engage our community.  What kid doesn’t dream of being a rock star?  How often do you get a chance to perform at a first class venue?  How did legendary rock musicians get their start?  Cops supporting kids enjoying music?  WHAT!!!????

On Friday, February 8th at 7:00 pm, the Redondo Beach Police Department and Beachlife Festival present the Youth Battle of the Bands.  The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center will be the site for the ultimate rock star experience for eleven youth bands to showcase their talents. Admission is free and everyone is encouraged to come support our local bands.

Legendary performer, Bobby Cochran, of Steppenwolf fame will play the memorable songs we all know and love, “Born to be Wild”, “Magic Carpet Ride” and the song made famous by his uncle Eddie Cochran, “Summertime Blues”. Come early and meet Bobby in the lobby along with our competing band members! 

Bring your friends, neighbors, families and music fans.  This is going to be our biggest event yet.  The winning band will have an opportunity to play at the Beachlife Festival in May.  Seating is limited, so be sure to get there early.  This event is FREE!!!
