AUSTIN, Texas — The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) annual Corporate Battle of the Bands drew in record-breaking numbers during the 2022 event on Thursday.

A handful of local celebrities, including KVUE’s Quita Culpepper, and music industry members judged the bands as they aimed to impress the panel. The C Notes, made up of employees at PNC Bank, ended up winning the title Thursday night.
