I'm going to be a guest judge for QC Rock Academy's Battle Of The Bands.  A super cool music school that takes field trips to see Cheap Trick for god's sake! So, you know these kids are actually interested the school they attend.  A far cry from anything I did when I was in school.

WHAT - QC Rock Academy "Battle Of The Bands 2014"
WHEN - Wednesday, August 6th at 7:00
WHERE - The Establishment Theater, 220 19th Street, Rock Island, IL

There will be 5 bands playing, each performing 4 songs. (3 Cover songs, 1 Original) The kids competing are between the ages of 12-17 years old.

This is not necessarily a 'talent' contest. Bands are in charge of promotion for the show and will get one point for every person that comes to see them. They will be judged on 5 categories on a scale of 1-10.

  • - Stage Presence
  • - Crowd Interaction
  • - Crowd Reaction
  • - Original Song
  • - Overall Performance

The winning band will get a recording session at Skylark Recording in Davenport to record their original song.
