SHREVEPORT, La.—Early morning showers and threat of afternoon rain could not dampen the spirits of the crowd on hand to witness the 5th Annual "Battle of the Bands" March 29 at the Hargrove Amphitheatre when local bands took to the stage to battle it out for the top spot. The Peekers won the coveted first place award, followed by The Situation in second, and Missoni Lanza placing third.
