The Visitors were awarded third place in the finale of the Tri-C High School Rock Off, which took place Feb. 1 at the House of Blues.
The band members include Jim Washabaugh 17, Joey Maggard 18, and Matt Rogucki, 18. They received $100 cash as a prize.
The winner and second-place bands were Backstage Politics from Beachwood, Hathaway Brown, Lake Catholic, University School; and STEVE from Glenoak, St. Ignatius, Westlake, respectively.
The Final Exam involved 15 bands which were selected from a series of semi-final rounds staged in January.
"This was the most diverse collection of bands I've seen in 18 years," said Frank Imhoff, executive director. "There's also a youth movement in progress. We're seeing younger musicians coming from northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania."
