Average Joes open for the bands contest/ open jam
Thu, Jun 2


Time: 9 p.m.

 This is the third week for bands to compete for an opening slot for Sweet at Average Joes in August.

 Every Thursday night Joe’s Garage holds a Live Jam session for aspiring artists to show their stuff. To date, the jam sessions have been “just for fun”, but now performers can be part of an exciting contest to “OPEN FOR THE BANDS”. That’s right, this summer Average Joe’s/ Joe’s Garage will be bringing in three big time, big name bands Dr. Hook, Nazareth and Sweet. Each of these bands will need an opening act, and that act could be you. Here is how it will work:

The contest will run every Thursday night in Joe’s Garage during the Live Jam session. It is open to all genres of music, bands or solo acts, which combine both instrumentals and singing. (Note: profanity is not allowed). Each night, a winner will be announced, and will then have an opportunity to return in June for a playoff.
Each Thursday night during May the 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th, contestants will be vying for a spot in a playoff on June 16th. The winner of the playoff will then open for the Sweet concert on Aug. 11 with a 30 minute set.

The 3 OPENING ACT WINNERS, will also receive 15 free tickets to their show, an opportunity to Record A Single at LA Studio Productions, a 4’ x 8’ custom banner for their band from Budweiser, and $500 dollars in Average Joe’s gift certificates.

This is a great opportunity to have some fun, expose your talents and who knows, maybe jumpstart a career in music. Sign up at the Live Jam Sessions every Thursday in Joe’s Garage starting at 9:00 P.M.
