It has been one month and we are back from the Hollywood Half to see what bands you remember, and enjoyed the most!
Join us in voting for the BEST BAND of the Hollywood Half Marathon and cast your vote today!
Here is what the bands have to say about their experience!
Carnival Seasons: Our performance was awesome while it lasted. Around the hour and a half mark the police came and shut us down due to complaints from the locals who were trying to sleep, which we obliged to easily. We had a great time it was a fun experience, and the people who saw us were all very surprised with us. We performed on Hollywood Blvd and Wilton Pl. We gave it our all though and with all people asking us what happened to the music made us feel that they really liked us!
Down South Mambas: We had a blast playing on Santa Monica and Vermont. We were at the turn around portion and we could see the joy and realness from all the runners. Hope the runners liked us because we certainly loved playing for them.
Attic Empire: The event was a blast! Had a great time playing out in the street and, even at the finish line, the runners brought great energy!
Cats With Class: The Cats with Class had a great time at the Palladium. We played a set of original and cover jazz, on a stage to be dreamed of, and even had a chance to appear on NBC :D. We especially enjoyed the impromptu dance routines by some of the vendors at the foot of the stage, as well as Mr. Jones's enthusiastic "Guacamole's" as we finished out the set. Remember, "GUACAMOLE ALL NIGHT LONG!"
The Blues: Playing the Hollywood Half Marathon was a great experience. It made us happy seeing the runners recognize the Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Eagles and Queen songs we covered. Sure we had some people complain about how loud the music was, but the look on the runners' faces of excitement made it all the worthwhile.
Final Notice: On behalf of our band Final Notice, we would like to thank the Hollywood Half Marathon directors/staff and event coordinators for the opportunity to perform at your event. Final Notice performed on the corner of Hollywood Blvd and Bronson where they rocked out all the classic rock songs from artists such as Van Halen, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc...
Franco Funktion: Our station was on the intersection of Hollywood and Western our performance included Bands Bear Lincoln and Franco Funktion. We really enjoyed playing here because we felt that the runners fueled off of our creativity while we fueled there desire to make it to the finish line.
Panoramic: We are Panoramic! We were supposed to play along the racetrack, but after being denied access to our position, ended up playing on the Walk of Stars just past the finish line! We had an incredible time and are very grateful for this opportunity!
Joseph Anthony: My performance at the Hollywood Palladium & Hollywood Half Marathon was truly an amazing experience! An opportunity that that I am extremely grateful for! I can literally feel the intensity from the runners at the start line as I was performing before the race. It was a feeling that I can't explain, you just had to be in my shoes. Overall the events were a pleasure to be apart and I would definitely do it all again in a second.
Stars At Night: Star At Night performed at Mile 11 on Hollywood & Gower with one goal in mind. Our goal was to keep the moral of the runners up and pumping. It was a phenomenal feeling performing as we watched a sea of people so excited, full of energy and passionate about what they set out to achieve. The runners really gave us a rush of energy which we wanted to give back by cheering them on. We made a promise not to stop till they all made it to the end and it seems we all accomplished our goals that day. It was simply exhilarating. Thank you to all the runners and the Hollywood Half Marathon.
