UPDATE: The first 10 bands to fill out their submission will be entered to win a Fender guitar and amp!
Now through Sept. 18, musicians from Sarasota, Manatee and surrounding counties can upload two songs for submission into the 2016 Rock for a Cause battle-of-the-bands competition!
All ages and genres are welcome, whether they are solo acts, duets or bands. The two songs can be either audio or video files, and the form has a few quick questions for the bands to complete, too.
Once submissions close on Sept. 18, online voting will begin for the top six acts. The public will vote online for their favorite bands from Sept. 19 through Oct. 7. The six bands with the most online votes will perform live at Rock for a Cause on Nov. 12, 2016 in Downtown Sarasota. Live and online voting will take place that night to determine the overall winner!
The winning band will receive $1,500 cash and will also be the closing act for the event.
