Bands representing eight local companies have signed up to compete in this year’s Triangle Corporate Battle of the Bands.

The lineup of bands for this year’s competition, which is set for Saturday, Sept. 20 at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, includes: Bank of North Carolina’s Cardinal Rule; Cormetech’s CleanAirCats; The Deep South All Stars, from Deep South Entertainment: Elster Solutions’ Killa Wattz; Joint Venture from Jenkins, Wilson, Taylor & Hunt; Blackwell from McKinney; SunTrust’s The Shine; and United Therapeutics’ The Unitherians.

The bands, announced Thursday, will compete for bragging rights – and to raise money for this year’s designated charity, Urban Ministries of Durham. Past battles of the band, which have been sponsored by Durham advertising agency McKinney since 2006, have netted more than $650,000 for charities.
