Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall is accepting entries for its first battle of the bands event, “Rock, Paper, Scissors” through this Wednesday, July 17.
“We’ve had a good response so far, but I know there are more bands in East Texas who are looking for a way to get their music heard,” said Anne Payne, Liberty Hall manager. “If you are looking for a location with great acoustics, Liberty Hall should be on your list of venues.”
Bands who are interested in performing in this show should submit a DVD or link of their performance with a limit of two songs. The band can feature any genre of music; at least one song submitted must be an original. Bands must be from the East Texas area and have at least three members; no solo acts.
A panel of judges will review the music and narrow down the competition. The bands selected to move forward will be posted on Facebook and voted on by the public. The field will then be narrowed to five bands that will play on the Liberty Hall stage on Aug. 17.
“Each band selected to perform will receive a professionally recorded video of their performance at Liberty Hall to market their band for future bookings,” said Payne. “The winning band will get to play in the upcoming ‘East Texas All Star Showcase’ on Sept. 7.”
Bands may mail a DVD recording to Liberty Hall at 110 W. Erwin St., Tyler, TX 75702 or email a link to firstname.lastname@example.org , subject line: Rock, Paper, Scissors. For questions, call Payne at (903) 595-7274.
