The Band Wars; A Competition Promising Rock, While The Weatherman Promised Rain

Star Chamber wins 'The Band Wars'

  • Joel Rodgers

The weatherman was wrong, again.

This weekend was beautiful and the bands called it; they said they would rock, and they did.

If you didn’t make it out to Festival Plaza this weekend, you missed the chance to see one of the best local lineup Shreveport has seen in a while. Band Wars, a battle of the bands type competition where 15 bands battled it out for $20,000. The crowd was small, but the rock was big!

Congratulations to Star Chamber, a Dreamy Surf Rock Band from Shreveport, Louisiana who just rocked their way to $20,000. Their performance on Saturday and Sunday was out of this world.

So much talent hit the stage over the two day event, but in the end only one could win. Star Chamber, a band who also won the Louisiana Music Prize less than 6 months ago. The Shreveport band able to capture the title as well as a large check for $20,000. Great job guys!

Star Chamber consists of 4 members, 3 of which are siblings; Amanda Tamaccio on vocals and guitar, Christopher Tamaccio on bass, and Anthony Tamaccio on drums, and Corey Bissell on lead guitar and vocals.

They’re very talented, but after hearing about their recent wins at both the Louisiana Music Prize and the Bands Wars, you probably already gathered that.

Over the past 3 days, I’ve covered the event and was there for all the performances, but I’m trying bragging too much, so I won’t go too much into how awesome it was seeing al the talent.

Star Chamber was great, but so were several other bands from Shreveport who are also great. Have you seen or heard Lions May Cry? Holy smokes they’re good!

How about Shayliff and Rella? Two more super-super impressive bands i’d pay money to see.

Over the next few days I’ll be releasing some videos/stories from this weekend, and you can find them here on this website and also at Real Shreveport Music and Entertainment .

Keep an eye out for our features on Arboroth, a VERY funny and entertaining metal band from Arizona. As well as a feature on Rella, a Shreveport band with super talented members.

It was great seeing everyone at Band Wars this weekend. The event was great, the music was baller, and the Shreveport music is crazy good.
