Battle of the Bands 2017 brings out the bears

Three 17 performing an original setlist at Battle of the Bands.

A crowd of people gathered around the stage in front of Stetson, bundled up in layers but still shivering from the cold. Bands took to the stage, one by one, each more different than the last, all performing for the chance to win QuadWorks’ Battle of the Bands.

“I think it was definitely different from last year,” Sophomore Kimberly Gessner said. “With everything from classical piano to worship music, it was a great showing of the diversity of talent at Mercer.”

In the end, Christian worship band Three 17 won the title.
