What’s the Point of the Contest?

This is simply a way for your Live and Local Rock N Roll Radio station to get our amazing local talent on the airwaves. And on top of the honor of sharing the airwaves with the likes of the Beatles and Zeppelin, your band can win all sorts of great prizes. (Prizes as of yet.. unknown) But nothing is greater than the bragging rights of knowing you are the best in Humboldt. And as a grand finale, the top 3 voted bands will perform live on November 7th at Humbrews for our Classic Cover Contest Finale and Birthday Bash. The winners will be declared that night.
