Congratulations to Coma Bloom for winning the first Beadles Battle of The Bands at the Lodi Music and Body Art Expo. They put on an amazing show and won a huge prize package that includes an entire album proffesionally produced and recorded by ProView Studios, a proffesional website and online digital distribution so they can sell their product.

Congratulations as well to Tragic Culture that came in at 2nd place as well as The Refuzniks and Through The Ashes. The final four put on amazing show and a wish was granted for a terminally ill child. It was an amazing show and hope to see you all out for the next one as well.

On October 1st, 2nd and 3rd, the beautiful Northern California wine country town of Lodi will become the epicenter of entertainment, with the first ever Music & Body Art Expo. The event is expected to draw thousands from the region which promises to be three action packed days of fun.
