If you haven’t already met them, we’d like to introduce you to some of our Battle of the Bands contestants. Chiv Culture, the Roslyn School of Rock House Band, and Psychonaut Underground will be bringing down the house on July 14 at Colden Auditorium, so now’s your chance to discover some of Queens’ musical diamonds in the rough. 

Chiv Culture is a collective of jazz students, and their music encompasses jazz, hip-hop, and a clever lyricism. With sunny vibes all around, we’re looking forward to an uplifting set from a crew that’s been creating a real buzz on the college radio circuit.

The Roslyn School of Rock House Band consists of teens aged 13-18, and they’ll be playing a variety of covers and mashups spanning several genres. They’re well-versed in all things rock, with influences in metal and jazz as well.

Psychonaut Underground first hit the music scene in 2013, when cousins Jeffery Carino and Janssen “Fish” Gonzalez came together to commemorate Jeffery’s late brother Paul. Their diverse sound incorporates punk, grunge, hip hop, metal, funk, and even classical music.

Rock out with these guys and more at the 2016 Battle of the Bands!
