Take a shot at fame and fortune. Take your Shot at the Cabo Wabo – the mother of all battle of the bands. Over the past three years, legendary Rock star Sammy Hagar has supported emerging artists throughout the country, to help them gain momentum in the world of rock ‘n roll – and now, he’s back to do it again! In its fourth year, this epic showdown will take place in seven markets - Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco from June until August, 2005. Each market will have up to 3 venues hosting 3 bands each week for 10 weeks. That’s more than 50 performance slots – and up to over 100 slots in each market!

Bands will be judged by industry professionals including music editors, bookers, agents, and venue managers – and winning bands will be decided by both the panel as judges as well as fan’s votes at the show. There will be three rounds to the competition – the first round will last eight (8) weeks and the top three bands in each market will move on to the second round. After that, the top band in each market – a total of seven bands – will move on to the third round as a local Cabo Wabo Band Ambassador and will be invited (all-expenses paid) to join Sammy and his friends in Cabo San Lucas to compete in the final round at Sammy’s Birthday Bash in October. The final winner will be chosen by a panel of judges in Cabo San Lucas.

With Sammy’s passion for great music, the Shot At Cabo Wabo gives your band the opportunity to elevate your status!

Bands may not consist of more than 5 members – all members must be at least 21 years of age and legal residents of the US.
