The following bands from Chaska, St. Louis Park, Hutchinson, Minneapolis, and Champlin were among those participating in the 2016 competition:
The winning band, Distant Edge, received a recording session from the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) at Master Mix Studios in Minneapolis. IPR judged/evaluated each band based on areas such as originality, technicality, and stage presence.
“IPR provides a great opportunity for our teen bands to experience recording their original music; they also offer feedback to the bands about their performance, what they do well and what they can improve on. The support of IPR for this event has been a long time relationship, we appreciate their contribution and support to our teen bands," Maple Grove Parks and Recreation Youth Outreach Coordinator Tanya Hilger said.
During Maple Grove Days, Distant Edge will have the opportunity to perform at Town Green 2:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 16.
