Friday, October 04, 2013
FAME! Want to get heard by tens of thousands of listeners AND play in front of Grammy-winning artists, platinum record producers and executives from top labels? Compete in our citywide search for the best musicians in New York City, the Battle of the Boroughs! All genres are welcome — from solo folk singers and hip hop MCs to rock bands and full chamber orchestras.
FORTUNE! The artist or ensemble that wins our Ultimate Battle will win a pile of exciting prizes worth an estimated $10,500, including: a showcase appearance at the famous Amateur Night at The Apollo, a four-hour multi-track recording session at NYPR's studio with professional audio engineers and studio techs; a produced video featuring Battle performances and a behind-the-scenes look at your act (check out last year's winners); a broadcast quality audio recording of the Ultimate Battle performance; a professional photo shoot of your performance; the opportunity to present a full concert in The Greene Space that will be video webcast live; and a $2,500 gift certificate to Tekserve!
UPDATE: The deadline to enter has passed. See the list of this year's contestants here.
PLAY! It all starts now: Enter the competition online via the form below or show us what you've got in person by signing up for live auditions happening in all five boroughs. The deadline to enter is December 31st, and we'll announce the bands from each borough selected to compete in the Battles on Monday, January 13th.
