Our first audition for the 2022 Friday Night Fight presented by the Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center is in the books.  Last Friday evening (June 3rd), we had our first open audition on the Ruoff Party Stage on the Pier at the Owensboro Convention Center.  Three of the participating acts scored high enough to advance to the grand finale event, which will be held on Friday, August 12th.  Here they are in order of how they finished in the standings Friday night.

And Uncharted won the night with their rendition of "Hurricane" by Band of Heathens. They were phenomenal and even got rousing cheers from some family members who were watching from their boat in the river.
