Warren High School musicians won the first annual Battle of the Bands that pitted Warren and Downey high schools last Thursday. The two school bands performed their competitive field show programs followed by a drum line battle, color guard showcase and pep band battle. The night ended with the two schools joining together and playing several pep band charts together.
Warren received 853 votes to Downey's 393 and gets to keep the 6-ft. tall trophy until the next battle. Downey's two band directors were also forced to wear Warren gear all day Friday.
The event helped raise more than $1,000 for the two schools, with students participating in "penny wars" all week.
