Behind the Music: Meet the Bands Competing in the 2015 Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs

'Battle of the Boroughs'

Originally Aired: Tuesday March 24, 2015

Battle of the Boroughs 2015

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.

Go behind the music and get to know the contestants repping each borough.
