While the music was a big part of what made the Hard Rock Calling Battle of the Bands so much fun, these past few Sundays have also been more than just a showcase for local bands. They've also been a chance for the local music community to come out in full force to support each other and gather in one place to hang out and network.
It was a great chance for us to get to meet some local folks including the crew from WKZQ, the judges — many of who play locally — and many other local musicians. One of these new faces was Alex Muller, a St. James High School grad who performs an acoustic act called This Is For My Friends. We caught up with Muller, who is home on spring break from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, to talk a little about his music, his appreciation for the local scene and his upcoming show Friday at Fresh Brewed Coffeehouse.
