After nine weeks of competition that saw 27 other bands fall by the wayside, the Bend-based rock ‘n’ soul quintet fronted by two powerful female vocalists (Stacie Johnson and Lilli Worona, plus Kent Howes, Andrew Blum and Matt McConnell) won enough audience votes last night at Liquid Lounge to claim the title of Last Band Standing.
Broken Down Guitars beat out three other finalists — All You All, Greyside and Jaccuzi — to take home the top prize, which includes studio time, a band vehicle, practice space, a photo shoot, free tacos for a year and other stuff. All told, first place won $12,000 in prizes.
Congrats to Broken Down Guitars!
