Battle of The Bands 2021

Saturday April 24, 2021 Hazzard County American Saloon ~ Cedar Rapids


Reminders for Saturday!

Free admission, plenty of cold beverages, Hazzard County will have a food truck, and we are hoping we will have a packed house with all the fun loving fans these bands have.

Saturday's weather looks sunny and around 60 degrees so hopefully patio doors will be open.

Be loud to cheer on your favorite band or heck be loud and cheer them all on.

Doors open at 2PM and Battle starts at 3PM!

Estimated Times for Bands to perform. In the past, we did run ahead of time so if you want to hear your favorite band(s) play, make sure to come early.


Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the BOTB 2020 was canceled "in person" and held virtually. This year, The Battle of The Bands 2021 is on!!

Scheduled to begin at 3pm April 24th, 2021 at Hazzard County Saloon in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, this large facility, once the Downtown Goodyear Tire Store, is large enough for proper social distancing and with the huge overhead doors, plenty of fresh air for everyone to feel safe in the Covid-19 age. Masks are encouraged inside the facility.

In February, 80+ Bands competed online garnering votes from friends, family and fans, in a poll, until the final 10 bands were decided by the fans!! The Final 10 (Listed Below) will go on to compete for 15 mins each at Hazzard County American Saloon.
