The World Famous Gorilla Music Battle of the Bands!
The Battle of the Bands has become more popular than ever. It is attracting huge crowds and a mammoth amount of interest in local music scenes across the country. Our Battle of the Bands Concert Series is world famous! Gorilla Music works with prestigious concert clubs in over 65 cities nationwide. Gorilla Music helps to opens doors for local bands hoping to make an impact within their music scene. Through a battle of the bands, groups are able to gain experience, play in great venues for great crowds, and learn more about the music business itself. Groups recognize that a battle of the bands can help them build a fan base, improve their bio, and gain the respect of their fans, other bands, promoters, and club owners. Winning a battle of the bands is the fastest way to take your group to the next level. Seeing that crowd and hearing hundreds of people screaming your group’s name will make an incredible impact on everyone there the night of your performance. Gorilla Music events are some of the biggest local shows in the country and probably the world. After a battle of the bands, groups are cherry-picked for other gigs, concerts and other opportunities. Our regional and national music fests attract thousands of people including fans, record label reps, and talent scouts. Our weekend showcases help groups define their status in their market place and actually increase their value to clubs and fans alike. We work with some of the greatest venues across the United States, such as The Knitting Factory in Boise, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, The Masquerade in Atlanta, The World Famous Agora in Cleveland, DNA Lounge in San Francisco, and The Curtain Club in Dallas, just to name a few. In addition to all our great shows and gigs we have an amazing Band Management Program and learning center, with literature and educational videos available online.
