Remember that time I talked last week about a huge announcement for this week? Well, the day has come that I get to reveal some major awesomeness! Young and Free is proud to officially announce our very first major competition! If you, or someone in your band is between the ages of 18-25 years old, Sound Off is for you! What is Sound Off you may ask? Well, imagine you are in a rocking band. You want to hit it big time and perform for people and record some of your music, but don't have the funding or means to do so. Well, the folks at Young and Free Maine are looking to help you with your quest! All you have to do is submit your original music to our website by March 5th and we will put it on our page (Rules and regulations apply). From March 6-17, you will have a chance to vote for your favorite song/musician (or yourself if you are entered). Aaaannnnd what happens if you win? Well, how does $1000 worth of recording/video/setting yourself up for iTunes at Main Street Music in Bangor sound? Sounds pretty great right?
Now you have the means to record your original music in a real recording studio. What else could you possibly want? Well, how about a venue? Okay...I guess we can do that too! You know what else you win? You get to perform at Kah Bang on the Bangor waterfront this summer! Imagine yourself next to some of the rockingeset bands out there! Who has played at Kah Bang? Lupe Fiasco, OK GO, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, My Morning Jacket...and YOU THIS YEAR! Kah Bang is attended by thousands of people each year, and it's shaping up to be an amazing year again as well!
Soooo there you have it, if you are a musician, you should obviously enter. What up and coming band wouldn't want $1000 for recording and a chance to perform live in front of lots of people? I know I would! Too bad I can't apply! Need more info? Check out the Sound Off page, our Facebook Fan page (which you should probably go and like) and watch the video! THEN ENTER YOUR MUSIC! Come on Maine! I know we've got some talent out there, and I'm ready to see what you've got. Ready....GO!
