25_sealSolar Battle of the Bands, a solar industry party and musical competition, announces its sixth annual event at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on Wednesday, July 13 at 8 pm.

Founded in 2011, Solar Battle of the Bands (SBOB) is produced by Quick Mount PV, a solar mounting manufacturer based in Walnut Creek, CA. SBOB is a unique industry event that coincides with the Intersolar North America conference. SBOB brings solar professionals together through a friendly competition of company bands.

This year, Solar Energy International (SEI) will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary in conjunction with Solar Battle of the Bands 2016. With over 45,000 students and alumni worldwide, SEI is the gold standard for training and continuing education in the solar industry. Solar Battle of the Bands is excited to help SEI celebrate this amazing milestone. A cocktail reception to honor SEI and toast their anniversary will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 PM at the Mezzanine, before the show begins. Must have a ticket to SBOB to attend.

Following the SEI reception is a packed line-up, including returning bands, “Reverend Ray & The Everlasting Incentives” from Inovateus Solar and “PV Wonder” from SolarCity. And re-emerging from the original Solar Battle of the Bands in 2011, Sunpower’s, “DC/AC” will perform with new and returning band members. Also returning from SBOB 2014 is the much-loved French band, from Exosun, with a new band name, “The Original Suntracks”. And last but not least, introducing this year, Fronius USA’s, “The Fronicators”.

Quick Mount PV’s house band, will cap the night off after the competition.
