2020 Battle of the Bands Finalists

First Place

Oaklee

OakLee was originally formed in 2017 by Ian Davis, Brandon Marshall, William Williams, Grant Shelnut and Christian Zonner. As a band we started out practicing song covers and writing originals. We quickly clicked as musicians and started playing local shows. As a band we have played hundreds of shows. We are continuing to quickly expand with our music, playing anything from old classic Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to anything nowadays on the radio. We even throw a taste of Rock ‘N’ Roll with anything from Tom Petty to Pearl Jam. We are growing everyday as a band and also as individuals in the industry. We have opened for acts such as Love and Theft, Frank Foster, Brandon Lay, Parmalee, Drake white and many more on our journey. Our Dream is to share our music and make sure the people are enjoying it and themselves at our shows. Music is a part of Life with us #OakLee

Runner Up

Electric Woodshed

Electric Woodshed is a four piece band that performs an eclectic mix of covers from the 70’s thru today. Our show includes a wide range of musical styles, emulating a diverse cadre of artists, such as: Heart, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, Foreigner, Journey, Rush, Aerosmith, 3 Doors Down, Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette, Kelly Clarkson, Walk The Moon, and many more.
The group formed in 2017, and have been hard at work since then “woodshedding” our material. Our name is derived from the idea of, as the urban dictionary puts it, “To practice a musical instrument. The woodshed is where you go to sharpen your axe.“
