At least one member of each Band must work in advertising, marketing, communications, or media. Bands must consist of at least two people, but not be more than eight people. Agencies/Companies can enter more than one band (so no need to worry about your punk rock style not meshing with your colleague’s smooth jazz quartet.)
Each band must submit an audition video of the band performing two (2) songs. The songs can be cover songs or original songs. The videos must be hosted on YouTube.
The submission period runs from January 16, 2013 to February 8, 2013.
A panel of judges will review all submissions and choose a shortlist of semi-finalists (final number to be determined based on the quantity of entries received) who are eligible to perform at the DC Band Together Event.
The shortlisted bands will be featured on the DCBandTogether.com website, where the public will vote on their favorites
The popular vote combined with the judges scoring will determine the final 10 bands who will perform at the DC Band Together event on February 21, 2013.
The event will take place on February 21, 2013 at Penn Social in downtown Washington, DC.
The performing bands will battle it out on stage. Each band will perform up to three (3) songs or up to 10 minutes. The panel of judges and the audience will vote on each act, with one winning band announced at the end of the show.
The event will be open to the marketing, advertising, communications and media community as well as the public-at-large. Start spreading the word to all of your friends and colleagues! Additional information on tickets will be coming soon.
