Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Announces Battle of the Bands
Listen Up Denver! and Park House have announced that they will host a battle of the bands event to give local bands in the Rocky Mountain region the opportunity to perform alongside some of the biggest musical names in the country at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival this September.
Bands of all genres are invited to submit their music for consideration via ReverbNation or at the Listen Up Denver website. The submission window will remain open from April 1 through May 15 before the selection committee selects up to seven bands to participate in the Battle of the Bands at Park House in Denver on August 9. Each band will be judged by a panel of industry professionals on criteria such as talent, musicianship, production value, professionalism, songwriting, crowd reaction and stage presence.
The winning band will receive a performance slot at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, as well as a complimentary “Jam in the Van” recording session, two nights lodging in Telluride or Mountain Village, artist passes to the festival, food vouchers and website and program guide placement. The runner-up will receive one day of studio time in Grammy Award winning producer John Macy’s studio and a full band portrait session with Denver music photographer Jim Mimna. All bands selected to perform at the Battle will receive photos and a recording of their performance.
