Queen City Rocks 2018 Submissions - Competition Opportunity

Queen City Rocks 2018 Submissions - Competition Opportunity

Run-offs over 5 weeks; Finals March 29th; Submission Deadline Feb 2/18

Deadline: February 2, 2018

Queen City Rocks is back for its 5th and biggest year yet. Regina’s Rock Station 104.9 The Wolf, The Exchange, and Long and McQuade Musical Instruments present Queen City Rocks 2017.

"Unlike a great many ‘battle of the band’ competitions you may run across, Queen City Rocks approaches things a little differently. And we’re not just talking about the ‘no entry fee’ part.  We’re genuinely interested in opening up this avenue for exposure and helping to bring the Regina “scene” together, fostering communication and collaboration between acts and strengthen the community as a whole. (A rising tide floats all boats). To put it bluntly, check your inner Diva at the door. Professionalism in all facets of this competition is what we’re aiming for, and expect from all involved. There will ultimately be a ‘winner’, but that’s not the primary focus of this project."

There will be up to 5 run-off performance weeks. The band scoring the highest total of points during their run-off will instantly win a $500 gift card from Long and McQuade, and advance to the Grand Finale on March 29/18. Five bands perform each night in randomly selected order. Each band receives 20 minutes on the clock (with a maximum of 1 cover song). Bands will be awarded points by an adjudication panel based on a number of categories (stagecraft, songcraft, vocal performance, etc).  Professionalism play a factor in the points process.  That includes EVERYTHING about your group. Social media presence, press kit, logo, availability of merch (you can sell it the night you perform) all make an impact towards the final score.
