The Best of the Chippewa Valley 2023

Best Hard Rock/Metal Band (original)

Ghosts Of The Sun made 2020 their own, gifting the Chippewa Valley with their first full-length album, chock full of heavy guitars, intricate songs, and brooding imagery (all without vocals). Their focus on musical synchronicity is uniquely Ghosts of the Sun. Drunk Drivers also share a love for hard rock/metal music, but partake in the genre by performing fun and catchy tracks. And contributing mightily to the local rock scene’s personality, The Jaggernauts continue to have a blast on stage; for their audiences, the feeling is mutual. –Parker Reed
