The majority of the bands are part of the alternative Christian rock scene such as I am Alpha and Omega, Sum of One, AIM FC, Justpassingthru, The Eternal Affect, Judah’s Song and Hyper Nicholas. Also competing will be Salida 7, a Latin rock band, and Reilly – proclaimed as one of the top up and coming indie bands in the country. Alpha and Omega, a local Hunterdon County band, received the most votes for the #1 spot in the top ten rankings. The bands will be judged by a panel of music enthusiasts along with reps from Safe Haven and Revelation Generation.
"We're really excited about the RevGen Breakout because it gives fans a chance to support local bands. The Revelation Generation concert has always worked with the surrounding community and locals to get them involved. This event is another way for all of us to all stay connected," said Sean Grom, Grassroots Marketing Coordinator for Revelation Generation. "The top ten bands are all amazing, so it's really going to be a tough competition. We can't wait to see everyone battle it out, live on stage this weekend."
