2009 Battle of the Bands

Listen to the 2009 Promo Spot

The Ryan J. Lariviere Memorial Fund 2009 Battle of the Bands “Reloaded” was not a battle, but a celebration. It marked the 5th anniversary of the fund. All the Grand Prize winners performed at this state-of-the-art venue, Showcase Live, Patriot’s Place, Foxboro, MA. All proceeds were donated to The Fund and we can't thank all the bands and fans that made this event one to remember! It was one insanely great party that celebrated not only the life of Ryan, the success of the Fund, but the music of bands that won the votes of judges such as, Paul Geary, Carter Allen, Michael Sweet, Patrick Faucher, Martin Vasques, and David Wood. Suzanne Tonaire “The Rock Babe” from was our Emcee for the evening.
