After three nights of preliminary competition at Tess’ Lark Tavern, Savannah’s and the Bayou Cafe, Q103’s Guitar Wars battle came down to the grand finale at Revolution Hall in Troy on Thursday night.
One of the top eight finalists would walk away with the crown as the Capital Region’s top guitarlinger and a $10,000 Martin guitar.
Or would they?
Apparently one of the finalists George Catanzal wasn’t able to compete on Thursday, so another short round of preliminaries was held first of Thursday night to find one more finalist to add to the mix. Classical guitarist Kevin Prockup emerged as that winner, which sent him straight into the finals, competing against Albie Von Schaaf, Rob Guerin, Chuck Valentine, Dallas Sheppard, Steve White, Mat Kane and Kaitee Page.
