Five hundred up-and-coming musical acts entered our talent quest. Forty were selected to battle in borough-by-borough competitions. Now, only five bands representing each of New York City’s boroughs are left standing in the 2015 Battle of the Boroughs.
One will be crowned the city’s best, wining bragging rights and massive prizes — including a showcase spot at the famed Apollo Theater Amateur Night.
