ST. LOUIS – A battle of the bands contest will be held at the O’Fallon Hoots field this summer. It will be called “Shredding at the Shield”. A winner will be crowned in August.

Three local bands will play a 20-minute set prior to the Hoots game starting June 2. A winner will be judged on crowd participation.

The winning bands each week will move on to the finals with the final winner taking home a cash prize.
