(What’s that? See list of Point listeners' 1003 best songs of all time. If your song isn’t there, that doesn't mean you can't cover it. Call & discuss: 786-5978 or 786-5104)
To enter your band into The Point’s Classic Cover Contest, you must first submit your band. Do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please give the following info: along with your band’s name and contact info, please attach a band photo that we can use for promotional and social networking uses.
Please submit your band now, so we have a fair idea of interest and how to format the tournament. You do not need to have your audio submissions ready to submit your band info. Just make sure we can contact you.
Deadline for music submissions is tentatively September 20th, 2013
***If you are entering your band's covers for the contest--please note that we acknowledge submissions are sent in with your band's permission for airplay, social networking and Point promotional purposes***
Contest starts September 30th (subject to change).
Three times a day (9 am, 12 pm, 3 pm) a DJ plays one classic cover from two bands. Phone lines and Facebook are open for voting for one hour.
(707-786-5978 and facebook.com/kwptthepoint).
That means... Get all your friends, fans, co-workers and family to listen to the point and to call in or vote on Facebook to vote for your band. (one phone call and one facebook vote per person okay)
The winning band of a heat moves forward in winners' bracket. Losing band, moved to loser’s bracket. Once in loser’s bracket, one subsequent loss removes band from tournament.
