Promising intimate fan-to-band experiences by limiting tickets to no more than 1,000 patrons, the organizers of Rock n Roll Resort will also award the winner of its Battle of the “Fan Bands” and Open Mic competitions a spot in the line-up at the next Rock n Roll Resort music festival.
“Over the years weʼve noticed that so many ʻsuper fansʼ of music are also accomplished musicians themselves,” explains the owner of Wicked Cool Productions. “They know how to jam, and also know they canʼt just walk up to an artist while performing and ask to sit in. While putting together this festival, we started talking with the artists about backing a ʻfan jamʼ and before we knew it, it all came together: the Open Mic, a Battle of the Bands, and of course, The Super Jam! Weʼve already had great interest in the BotB. The first band to signup was SOULBOT from the San Francisco Bay area. Theyʼre a ʻLivetronica Funk-Stepʼ band. We canʼt wait to see the different bands and the diverse musical stylings this opportunity brings.”
“We’re very excited for the Super Jams,” remarks another member of WCP. “One night will feature The Scott Murawski Super Jam Spectacular featuring tons of special old school guests, another night features Deep Banana Blackoutʼs Funk Mob Family Reunion and finally, another night presented by The Royal Family, will be The Royal Family Masquerade Ball. Dress to impress and donʼt forget your Venetian Mask!” Tickets available January 31st through the www.rocknrollresort.com website. Pricing and other event information can be found through the website as well.
