The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails to Showcase
Local Talent With the Return of Battle of the Bands

See some of Las Vegas’ top rising stars as they compete for cash prizes
and a residency at the highly acclaimed rock n’ roll speakeasy.

The Battle of the Bands is back for its fourth installment at The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails, the hard rock speakeasy located within The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The exciting month-long event will feature up-and-coming local talent performing for a chance to win cash prizes and residency at The Barbershop. Performances will be every Monday night from July 15 through August 12, from 10:30 p.m. until late. Bands can register for entry online here.

Hosted by Ben Carey, Barbershop’s resident star and former guitarist of Savage Garden and Lifehouse, each night, four of 16 prospective bands will perform 30-minute sets for a panel of 3 local celebrity judges that rotate weekly. Contestants will be judged on song choice, performance and crowd interaction to determine which band from each night will move on to the final round. Any potential ties will be voted on by the crowd. At the end of the final night on Monday, August 12, one band will be crowned winner and receive a $5,000 cash prize and a 6-month residency at The Barbershop.

With its intimate atmosphere and high-energy music, you never know who you might see on stage as Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak, Zac Brown, Dave Matthews, Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, among others, have given surprise performances for guests.
