Trekkers' Annual Battle of the Bands!

A fun and energetic fundraising event, Trekkapalooza is Trekkers’ ninth annual battle of the bands concert featuring an eclectic mix of musical acts. The bands will compete for the "Best Bus Band 2014" title.

Trekkers is opening up two spots at this year’s event for bands with a unique sound and style that can add to the already amazing line-up of talent. If selected to perform at Trekkapalooza, bands will be eligible to win a cash prize and be crowned “Best Bus Band 2014.”

All proceeds from this student-led fundraiser will benefit Trekkers, a youth mentoring organization that serves 7th through 12th grade students growing up in the communities of Regional School Unit #13 (Cushing, Owls Head, Rockland, South Thomaston, St. George, and Thomaston). The Trekapaolooza fundraiser has been a crucial source of income for Trekkers in large part thanks to the generous donations from the community.

This year's bands include:

The Partials

The Partials are a skate punk from Mid-coast Maine.  They enjoy controversy and pudding pops. There melodies are almost as great as there stunning features. If we are the winners of this amazingly awesome battle of the bands they will be putting the money to a great cause (releasing a cd)  so make sure you vote for us, so than you can hear a cd that will make you go, “Uhhhhhh!”  this is great.  Quote from Kayne West,  vma’s 2009 “Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish but The Partials had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”

 

Drive by Todd

Drive by Todd is a very new band, but in the short time we've been together (or even known each other) we have accomplished some awesome things, written some killer music, and made some sweet connections. Our following is small, but our hopes are high. We're writing like mad and gigging as we can.

Honestly, life right now is mental. All four of us have never wanted anything more than to be on stage. With our crazy cool drummer Peytonious Maximous beating the set, Vocalist and bassist Bella Perry rocking the bass, Georgina Butler thrashing on rhythm and vocals, and sweet sweet lead guitarist and occasional vocals Jake Nagy tearing up some insane solos. And with the help of fellow roadies Lisa Stanley-Pearse & Amanda Corey, we're a force to be reckoned with. The world sees an aspiring musician as someone who will never amount to much. We're proving them wrong, right now, as they are doubting us. Thanks to everyone who is supporting our music, booking the band, coming to shows...You're all the coolest of cats.

 

The Educators

The Educators are a 3 piece rock band located off exit 39 on Rt. 84 west. The group expertly blends funk, blues, strawberries and milk to create tasty rock smoothies. Members,  Andy "88 keys"  Meigs, Rob "felt pick" Isner, and Patrick "Patrick Scully" Scully have been making music together since 2007, playing gigs around Connecticut and Greater New England, notably a second place finish at Trekkapalooza 2012. The guys are excited to be back in the 207 and looking forward to another great show...

 

Hafsol

What do you get when you cross two gingers, a metalhead, and a computer without spell check? A band of brothers, friends, and musicians that are difficult to define. Hafsol, consisting of brothers Chase and Alex Winn and assumed brother Brian Wright Jr., have been playing together since they could hold their instruments. The trio draw influences from bands like Green Day, Rush (official band idol), and Metallica. As well as making a racket as a rock n roll power trio, they've been spotted barefoot playing acoustic blues, bluegrass, and folk styles. We hope you enjoy the show!

 

Hologram

Hologram appearing live from Appleton in their debut performance. Fiona Smith is a 10 year old 5th. grader who has been playing ukulele for 5 years and flute for 3 months. Lexi Smith is always singing. She has played guitar for 6 years. Ben Owre started playing piano at age 7, has played trombone in the school band and is currently in the Middle School chorus.

 

Random Ideas

Here's something you won't find just anywhere,... a punk band of 15 year old triplet girls! They have known each other since birth, but have only been playing their instruments for two and a half years. They are bringing back the punk sounds of the 90's, and the alternative songs of today. With Kinsey Johnson on guitar, Lexi Johnson on bass and vocals, and Meagan Johnson on drums, one band you are sure to remember is...Random Ideas!
