Nov 23, 2004 — Lamport Auditorium was the site of an exciting and heated contest of musical talents when more than 600 students, parents and guests attended a rousing concert on November 16. Five popular Jewish bands squared off at the Third Annual Battle of the Bands featuring a special guest appearance by Simply Tsfat.

Omek Hadavar, a band composed of YU students, narrowly won the competition and also won Battle of the Bands last year in Israel. Jeremy Gaisin’s Midnite Remedy came in a close second. A panel of 20 Jewish musicians judged the contest.

Four busloads of students from Stern College for Women came to the Wilf Campus to join in the festivities. The undergraduate student councils sponsored the concert.
