Band competes in Rockdale Baptist's Battle of the Bands
Asmodeus joins Battle of the Bands
Jonah Meredith and his band Asmodeus performed at The Battle of the Bands competition at Rockdale Baptist Church, 1295 Smyrna Road, Conyers, on July 10.
Jonah, 11, is the high energy drummer in the band. His bandmates are his brother Jordan Meredith, who plays lead guitar and family friend Hayden Keating-Broyles, who plays the bass guitar.

Though young in years, Jonah is a sight to see on his drum set. His mother Jeri Meredith explained, "Jonah has been playing the drums since he was 4 years old." This Friday will not be Jonah's first performance; he performs twice a week at The Church at Monticello where he and his family attend church services.

Jonah stated that he, "does not ever get nervous," and even though this was his first performance in front of a larger crowd with his new bandmates, nerves were the last thing on his mind.

During their performance this weekend, Asmodeus performed four original songs and one cover song of "Wipe Out" by the Beach Boys. Asmodeus was one of five teen bands performing in the Battle.

The doors to the event opened at 7 p.m. and the music began at 8 p.m. The Rockdale Baptist Church Youth Group will be having a "lock-in" that night and was present during the concert.

Event coordinator and Rockdale Baptist Church Worship Leader Austin Studebaker said that five bands performed Friday night and that she expected a crowd of around 100.
