Their prize package for winning included a recording session with Reel to Reel Studios (famous for the legendary rock band Collective Soul), a performance at Relay For Life 2012, and a live interview on 92.5FM “The Bear”. “I was very excited that the judges chose them as the winners of our Battle of The Bands competition back in October” said Lowder. “I knew they’d be a great addition to the Relay line-up.”
House Of Thomas will be headlining a great entertainment line-up at the annual Relay For Life event. Former Event Chairperson, Zach Stutts is making his debut as Entertainment Chairman. “Zach has worked really hard to put together a program that will appeal to the varied audience that participates in Relay. “said Chairperson Lowder.
