Battle of the Corporate Bands

Do you have a hidden musical talent that you don’t get to share in the every day corporate world? Do you have a garage band with some of your coworkers, or have you always wanted to start one? If so, this competition is for YOU!

On August 8, 2019 at the UCO Jazz Lab, The Journal Record will present the second annual Battle of the Corporate Bands. A group of company sponsored bands will be selected from the application process and face off in a live competition. Battle of the Corporate Bands will feature a variety of genres played by company employees and business colleagues who have a passion for music outside of their day job! Each band will have 15 minutes to “wow the crowd” with a minimum of 3 songs in their set.

An independent panel of industry experts will determine which band will take the traveling trophy back to their office along with the bragging rights. The bands will be judged on music, originality, on-stage presence, appearance & personality, and crowd applause. The winning band will receive a monetary donation made in their name to the charity of their choice.

Deadline: July 25, 2019
