CHAMPAIGN -- Local bands rocked out for a chance to win big. Nine high school rock bands went head-to-head Saturday.

Parkland College Theater hosted this year's Battle of the Bands. Winners got a grab-bag of prizes and a chance to record their music at a local studio. Band members said they were just happy to be on stage.

"Seeing people get up and feel our music and have the energy that we hope that they feel about our playing, it's pretty cool to see," Hunter Langhhunn said.

Battle of the Bands was judged and hosted by local musicians. The event was sponsored by area businesses and the Champaign Park District.
