Under the bright lights and glass pyramid of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, and in front of a cheering crowd, Flashbang of the 122nd Army Band took the stage at the 19th Annual Tri-C High School Rock-Off. Performing a showcase set to promote the Ohio Army National Guard and the Army Music Program, the musicians of Flashbang entertained the crowd of more than 700 with a wide-ranging set list.

The songs played included Centuries by Fall Out Buy, House of Gold by TwentyOne Pilots, as well as several others. But the crowd favorite was, without a doubt, the final tune: a rock version of Sia's Chandelier.

As with last year's performance at the Cleveland House of Blues, the Tri-C Rock Off featured 10 bands of young musicians performing for a spot in a finals round on 7 February. The 2015 Tir-C High School Off was sponsored by KISS FM, School of Rock, Guitar Center, Cuyahoga Community College, the Ohio National Guard, and others.
