The winner of TREKKAPALOOZA 2014, held January 25th, was Hologram, an Appleton based band made up of sisters Fiona and Lexi Smith and Ben Owre. To open their set, this young band entertained the crowd with their cover of the popular Lorde song “Royal” and also included songs from the Beatles and Buddy Holly.
Coming in a close second was the Connecticut based band The Educators, a returning favorite at Trekkapalooza. Impressive performances were also given by Drive by Todd, Hafsol, The Partials, and Random Ideas.
Band members from Hologram will share a cash prize of $250 and carry the title of “Best Bus Band for 2014”. The band will be invited back next year to defend their title at Trekkapalooza 2015.

The Trekkapalooza Committee, made up of students Kaleb Robinson, Jenny Carter and Reagan Goulet, as well as Executive Director Don Carpenter, would like to thank everyone who made this student-led fundraiser so successful for the 9th year in a row. From volunteers to sponsors to bands, we couldn’t do it without you!
