Battle of the Bands PLUS!
DEADLINE DECEMBER 13th
First Night’s Battle of the Bands “Plus”
Heads Back to the Gym at the Connie Bean
PORTSMOUTH, NH. October 22, 2013. Pro Portsmouth’s First Night® celebration will feature a Battle of the Bands with a plus.
According to Executive Director, Barbara Massar, this year’s Battle will welcome choral groups as well as other musical genres. “We decided not to limit the event to only small bands. With so many great a capella and choral groups in the area, let’s make Battle more inclusive.”
Pro Portsmouth provides sound and technical support for the evening with their official partner, L. Wynn Sound. Musicians and other performers must bring their own instruments and be prepared to perform a set lasting 20 – 30 minutes.
The First Night BOTB takes place at the new Connie Bean Community Center on Parrot Avenue.
On December 31st the first group will take to the stage at 8pm. Interested up and coming bands need to complete the BOTB Performance Application available at http://www.proportsmouth.org/battleofthebands.cfm
The BOTB Application should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org along with any online performance links or mail materials to: Portsmouth, P.O. Box 967, Portsmouth, NH, 03802 by December 13th.
Bands are competing for the opportunity to perform on the Pleasant Street Stage at the
37th Annual Market Square Day which takes place on Saturday, June 14th.
