The 16th annual Battle of the Bands and Nickel Picnic was a big success last weekend. Entertainment began at noon and continued into the night out at the Graham County Fairgrounds. At the end of the competition, three judges awarded the grand prize to a group from Globe and Phoenix – “Jean and the Chocolate Drops.”

Second place went to a local group called “Station J.”

Third place went to “Farquaad.” another local band.

Other awards were presented:

Best Bass Player – “Nate DeRussia”
Best Drummer was “Jay Brimhall” from Station J.
Best Guitarist went to “Jarred Horton” from Station J.
Best Vocalist went to “Chaz Ornellas” from Farquaad.
Best Speciality Instrument went to “Cary Paul Giagous” from Heat Stroke.

The event drew more than 2300 people and features a lot of new vendors and, of course, lots of fun.
