San Diego County Fair: Calling All Bands

It's true that I've never been a big fan of "Battle of The Band" style competitions, but with the growing pool of talent in San Diego, if the Fair wants to hand out $25,000, then how can I not encourage musicians to participate? Anyway, here's the e-mail:

It’s “Music Mania” this year at the San Diego County Fair! To celebrate that theme, we’re looking for the best musical talent in America, and we’re going to give them $25,000!

The Musicpalooza contest will determine the best band of three or more members, and the best solo singer. The winners of each division will take home $25,000! The judging committee consists of high-profile music industry professionals, so you’ll get some great exposure to the right people.

Do you have the talent, but you just need a break to make it big? Enter now through March 31, make it through the first rounds of judging, and you may be performing live on the Fair’s Grandstand Stage on July 3 as the opening act for a major recording star.

Spread the word! Forward this message to your cousin in Colorado, your friend in Florida or your nephew in Nebraska. The contest is open to all musicians in the U.S. and Baja California.
