Each year, bands submit their demo's and the commission members go through them, vote, and select the top twelve that will get to perform at the event. Then, we provide a musician's clinic, where the artists have the opportunity to work with professional sound technicians. In April, the bands record at a local recording studio, and their song goes onto the annual BOBfest c.d. Then, usually the second weekend in June, the BOBfest [Battle of the Teenage Bands festival] competition is held.
This event provides youth in our community with the great opportunity to experience playing in front of over 200 people and the chance to record in a studio.
