Music is for Everybody – Battle of the Bands

Michelle Campbell Publicity is at it again and this time she’s taking “Music is for Everybody” one step further in promoting Port Elizabeth’s local talent by hosting “Battle of the Bands” auditions every three months at 33 Chapel Street Studios.

Campbell’s concept of “Music is for Everybody” is to not use only local artists as supporting acts to national and international acts when they are in Port Elizabeth, but to also give them the opportunity to further themselves in the entertainment industry.

“Music is for Everybody – Battle of the Bands” will invite local bands, solo artists, dancers and poets to perform in front of a panel judges, consisting of Michelle Campbell Publicity representatives, local radio DJ’s and a representative from one of South Africa’s national or international acts.

In order to enter and secure themselves a place at the auditions, performers will be charged R200 and should patrons wish to sit in on the auditions, they will be charged R50. Those performing will be given a total of twenty minutes to prove themselves to the judges, after which the judges and the audience will choose the winner. The winner furthermore, will win R2000 in cash, a chance to record a single and will receive social media promotion from Michelle Campbell Publicity as well as the assistance in staging their own show at 33 Chapel Street Studios.

The first auditions date is still to be confirmed, but is set to take place on the last weekend of March 2015, so keep an eye on the “Music is for Everybody – Battle of the Bands” Facebook page for the date.

Port Elizabeth artists, here’s your chance and possibly your big break – be sure to grab this opportunity and don’t miss out.
