40 bands were considered and 8 bands selected to perform at the very first Psychobilly Meeting Battle of the Bands contest held at Santis Beach bar. The Judges were from the best of musical talent on the scene. The competition was intense and the judges had a hard time deciding. Those that were there and the place was jammed packed knew which band we would announce first, the winners of that competition. Coming from Rome,Italy, the band was the idea of two good friends, their DNA is rockabilly but with a definite punk attitude. They showed everybody at Santis Beach Bar they are able to put on a great show, they are crazy mad, crazy fun with a cavernous sound. They are the winners of the 2017 battle of the Bands, they are The Cockroaches !!!!
