There has been a bit of negative sentiment in the industry around the sudden increase in band search competitions but to be honest, when you have a look at the prize that’s on offer in the Take the Stage band search from the V&A Waterfront and Marshall Music, it’s hard not to get behind this one.
The V&A Waterfront and Marshall Music are looking for the next hot band and regardless of whether your genre is rock n roll, pop, country or blues, you’ll still have the chance to win the opportunity to perform on the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre to a packed audience and WIN two full studio sessions with The Heritage Sound Recording Studio. Added to that, you’ll get the the chance to work with SAMA award winning engineer Rusti Rossouw to record your single (all valued at R 10 000). Then as the cherry on top of the cake, the winning band will be included in the lineup to perform as the opening act at the V&A Waterfront’s New Years Eve festivities (which absolutely cooks in Cape Town).
Take the Stage will see different finalists perform every Saturday in November, with the winning band announced on the 6th of December 2013. If you’re keen to get involved all you have to do is send one song and the bio of your band to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call Real Wired Music on 021-532-2180 before the 30 September 2013.
