- Have What It Takes?
- All new bands looking to play The Vault, this is where you start!
- DATES AVAILABLE: 11/9, 11/24, 12/1
- Our Fall series of Band Wars has been so successful that due to the high demand of bands wanting to participate, we have decided to hold a Winter series held in November and December. Band Wars is open to all bands of all genres who wish to partake in the competition, this also applies to bands that have performed in our previous series of Band Wars.
- This is our 3rd year running the Band Wars series and each band that has made it through to the finals continued to hold an audience of 30-40 heads the following year, and we continued to have them on our bigger national shows. So if you’re good at what you do, this is a great jumping point to grow a fan base in this market.
- Here is how it works, each band will be required to play 1 Preliminary Round & 1 Final Round, IF you make it to the final… a total of 2 Rounds in total in this series. 3 Preliminary Rounds will be held and from those rounds, 2-3 Bands will be selected to move on, with the possibility of a wild card as the judges see fit.
- ***THIS IS NOT A PRESALE SHOW*** Set Times are based on how many tickets each band can push, the band that sells the most will get to choose their set time 1st and so on each bands down the list. Each band will be given 30 tickets to sell at $10, there is *** NO REQUIREMENTS TO SELL ANY TICKETS***, hard working bands should be rewarded for the effort.
- All bands will check in at 5:30PM Sharp, on the day of the event to figure out where each band plays, make sure to tell your friends and family the show starts at 6:30PM because you might be the ones who have to play 1st. Final Round will be held on December 15thth.
- 3 Judges will watch each band battle it out on stage for 20min.
- Points will be awarded in 3 categories:
- Song Structure | Musicianship | Performance/ Crowd Reaction
- Each category will have 10 points possible and the band that sells the most will receive a bonus of 3 points overall for their efforts.
- The Winning band will receive $500 Cash! 1 Day of Recording w/ Alex Pappas (Founder of Finch) & 10 Days of Practice Space in our Studios.
