Prizes: Development Deal from Jamsync Music, a Baltimore-based label specializing in hard rock with full distribution and nationwide connections for touring.
The new Hammerjacks will also be a sponsor and looking for bands for the new Hammerjacks Club & Casino slated to open in 2013.
There will be 3 judges of sorts. Hammerjacks will be one judge. They have decibel meters that will gauge the crowd response for each band, and they will be asking every person that comes in who they are there to see, if anyone specifically. That means the bands have an official judge as 1/3, but 2/3 is based on audience. The ability to bring people to the event (which is very important), and the ability to win the rest of the crowd over. They will be handing out stuff that makes noise at the door to help the DB meters get a reading as well.
So as you can read this is a huge opportunity for us and we need you to be a part of it! The more people and noise the better the chance we have to win! You guys have been great offering us support and now is a better time then ever to help us out and show us what you guys can do! Bring your voices and we'll bring the rock! Be sure to leave any questions in the comments below, we will answer them!
