32 Pints Crowned Winners of Molloy College Battle of the Bands

Every year, Molloy College in Rockville Centre has an annual Battle of the Bands competition. Each year, bands and performers of every genre from all over Long Island sign up to compete against each other for the title.  This year, Battle of the Bands was hosted by the Molloy Performing Arts Club, the Molloy Gaelic Society, and the Molloy Ultimate Frisbee Club.

The competitors practiced day after day in order to prepare themselves for the competition and when the night finally arrived, they couldn’t wait to take the stage.  Fans poured into the theater awaiting the performance.  32 Pints, a local rock band lead by Chris Prestamo and Jeremiah Titone won over the crowd with their upbeat music and wonderful stage presence.  32 Pints is a familiar name around the Molloy campus due to the fact that they have previously preformed at campus events like Relay for Life, open houses, and end of the semester barbecues.

“I couldn’t be happier!” said Prestamo.  “I was so excited to take the stage and I was honored to have won.”  The night was a huge success and the members of 32 Pints were so grateful for wonderful new fanbase that Molloy has given them.
