The city is partnering with the Loganville Development Authority to put together the first-ever Battle of the Bands and next Saturday, May 1, is the date it all comes together. The city is hoping that this inaugural event will continue for years to come.
“If this goes well, and is well received, we’re hoping for this event to become a yearly event to support musicians and the businesses in our community,” Branden Whitfield, Vice President of the LDA, said. “This idea came up at a meeting with Robbie (Schwartz), Kristy (Daniel) and myself about doing a combined event with us at the LDA. They wanted to do something to support the arts in Loganville. Not only is it supporting the arts, but having an event like this can help local businesses because of increased foot traffic in and around Main Street, with the potential of drawing in more customers.”
