One One Sonicbids artist will be selected and have the normal $100 entrance fee waived.


The competition will be digitally multi-track recorded on a 32-channel recording system. Each band will receive a fully mixed/mastered copy of their performance on audio CD within 4 weeks after the competition. There will be ambient mics in the house too, so all participating artists/bands will receive a professionally produced live CD just for competing.



This competition is open to bands of any genre, but the performance will be at a Blues Festival, which is a family event where people like to enjoy good-time music and get up and dance. Bands do not need to play blues, but it should be appreciable and enjoyable by the folks who attend such an event.



The event will be held on January 8th at Velma's in San Francisco (2246 Jerrold Avenue, 415-824-7646). Check-in time will be 10AM. The Competition will begin at 11AM and end at 4PM. The registration fee of $100 per act will be required at check-in. Admission for non-performers will be $10 at the door.
