Free Henry! on Thursday night won the Hard Rock Cafe USA 2011 Battle of the Bands, and won the right to compete to perform in a London concert later this year.
Colors in the Air came in second and Ransomville was third.
Free Henry!'s videotaped performance will be sent to the Hard Rock International Corporate Offices for final judging. The top 10 bands from the participating North American cafes will be posted at HardRock.com on or around April 12 and the online voting portion will begin.
The band with the most Internet votes will win a trip to Hard Rock Calling 2011 to perform along with international Stevie Nicks, Rod Stewart and Bon Jovi.
Last year, Hard Rock Niagara Falls winners More Than Me went on to win nationally and opened for Paul McCartney.
