Battle of the Bands

Every fall semester, AMA hosts a Battle of the Bands philanthropy event to raise money for JDRF and support type 1 diabetes research. A group of local artists play at an Iowa City venue and the crowd determines who is the grand prize winner of $250 and an encore performance! Last year alone the UI chapter raised over $1,100 for JDRF and had a lot of fun in the process! Prizes given away included:

  • Westwood Electric Guitar (Valued at $200)
  • Rogue RD Acoustic Guitar (Valued at $179.99)
  • Autographed music albums from Tim McGraw and Lee Brice
