It’s been two years since Islandcom relaunched as the first 3G service provider in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
As the only local telecommunications company, Islandcom has created a very strong presence in the community with its 3G service providing customers with superior call quality, the fastest data speeds on island, and remarkable customer care services.
To mark the occasion, Islandcom will host its 2nd Annual Battle of the Bands Competition. Bands from around the TCI will battle for recognition as the best performers in the country. All profits for the event will be donated to the Provo Children’s Home and the Turks and Caicos Kidney Foundation.
The 2011 Battle of the Bands competition was the highlight of the month, drawing a huge crowd to the Turtle Cove Marina to cheer on their favorite local bands. The crowd was entertained by bands such as Lee Forbes and the Force, Smoking Honey, Hoozya Daddy, Q Band Lynx, Rasta Generation and Bowen Arrow.
Taking home the grand prize for the night of $3,000 was Bowen Arrow, which won the crowd over with their rendition of Ceelo Green’s “Forget You.”
Second place went to Smoking Honey with its medley of R&B, reggae, and rake and scrape music.
This year’s event will be held June 23 at the Turtle Cove Marina on Providenciales. The grand prize will be $4,000 and Samsung Galaxy handsets with one year of service. Second place winners will receive $2,000 with phone service.
New this year will be a 3rd place winner; which will be awarded $1,000. The three winning groups will also be awarded gift certificate from event co-sponsors The Wine Cellar.
