Garage71 is proud to present Battle of the Bands at Porterdale Bar and Grill, kicking off Halloween night, Ocotber 31st, 2015!!! This is going to be one of the best events of the year! We are opening up our studio and searching for bands between today, July 21st, 2015 and closing down our choices on October 3rd, 2015. We will be announcing finalists on Tuesday, Ocotber 6th on Erin RadioFox Watson’s local only show on Garage71.

The Battle begins October 31st, 2015 at Porterdale Bar & Grill’s Halloween Bash. This night will be off the chain with a Hot Rod and Motorcycle Cruise In. There will be a Pin-Up and Halloween Costume Contest with Cash Prizes!!! Erin RadioFox Watson will be on location giving away some goodies and plenty of tricks and treats during the night! This is a FREE event. The crew at Garage71 is going to bring the Freaky Tiki back to you this Halloween with some of the best choices for Battle of the Bands.

The Battle of the Bands will be judged by local industry icons and music industry leaders. Each week, 3 bands will perform a 30 minute original set. Bands will be judged on the following

  • Originality
  • Performance Quality and Technique
  • Stage Presence and Style
  • Fan Interaction and Participation

Bands interested in competing will first submit the following for qualification considerations for the TOP 9 positions for the Battle of the Bands.

  • Email Garage71 at [email protected], Subject Line BATTLE
  • Send in Band’s/Artist BIO and supporting Promo Pack Material with Pictures
  • Send in only 3 of your best MP3’s
  • Send in link to your Social Media Facebook Page

You may also mail your band/artist press kit to:

Hot Pan Productions, Inc

504 West Main Street

Buford, GA 30518

If you do not send in the above requirements, you will automatically be disqualified. We will not contact you back to request additional requirements or search your band out if all material is not provided as requested.

We will post a link on Garage71 asking your fans to respond and support your band for considerations for the battle. Make sure your fans like our page and link on our page. Anything shared or use those who like your band on another page or link does not help your band in any decision making process. This portion is only one small additive of the entire Battle and does not guarantee that you will be placed in the final 9. However, it might push a vote in that direction if you are tied with another band and you receive crowd support in addition to performance requirements.

Band/Artist deadline for submissions is October 3rd, 2015. Finalists will be announced on-air with Erin RadioFox Watson at 8:30PM, Tuesday, October 6th, 2015
