As of January 1st, 2009 the Gorilla Production’s battle of the bands series is also now a national online competition. Every 1st and 2nd place Battle of the Bands Finals winner will qualify for our website talent search. Online voting will determine the top 10 bands, out of 200 1st and 2nd place battle winners. Each month, the top ten voted bands will move on to the online FINALS in February. Last year, we had over 150,000 voters in the month of February, ALONE!
The 10 finalists will receive a plaque and will be part of a full page ad in Outburn Magazine, an internationally distributed publication. One of the top 10 bands will be awarded a $25,000 record deal with Rock X Records and U.S. tour. This will include the preparation of a full length cd, merchandise, touring, publicity, marketing, and distribution. Inclusion in this contest is in addition to the Battle of the Bands Finals prize of $500, 20 hours of studio time and a headlining gig promoted by Gorilla Productions.
Polls are now open and will change monthly, SO CAST YOUR VOTE OFTEN! Voting begins the month following each Final nationwide through January 2011. (i.e. June winners will be posted in July etc.) In February 2011, Gorilla Productions will re-post all monthly winners for the grand prize final voting. Then, on March 1st 2011, the top ten winners will be announced and the interviewing process will begin.
