WHO: Your band! All it takes is a demo to enter. You have to drop it off at Scarlett's by December 20th. The bands will be picked by the manager of Scarlett's and the promoter. Quality of recording will not count against you. All we need to do is hear you. You don't have to have a professional demo to enter. We are musicians and professionals as well and understand that getting a "high end" recording is expensive and takes time.
PRIZES: 1,200 in cash. 4 hours of studio time provided by A1A Audio in Jacksonville beach also they will be featured on Channel 4 morning show! Gift certificates to Rhetts, Mojo's, harry's. Tickets to THE STANDARD and Many more prizes TBA in Dec.
JUDGES: There will be three Judges. All are different and fully employed by our local music scene. They will be scoring the bands on five categories, which will be announced in December.
TIME: Each band gets a 20 minute set with a five minute break down/set up time. Total of 30 min per band. There will be a timer and final time will be considered by the judges.
BACK LINE: There will be a drum kit, bass amp, guitar amp all provided. We will announce the model type as the show gets closer. Toes in the sand will be running the sound during the show. These guys are a local studio/live sound company and they are good at what they do. Treat them nice:) If your band is picked you will be asked to email us your stage plot. We should be prepared to help you set up as quick as possible.
ENTRY FEE: We have a $25 entry fee for each band (only if you are selected to enter). This money goes right to the sound guys! On the night you perform you will bring it to the sound board and this will be your way of checking in for the event. Please be prepared to pay the $25 then.
