ATTN All Bands! Local and Loud is back for 2016

The Road Heavy talk about what it's like to win a competition like this

Spring time is a time of renewal, freshness and rejuvenation. It’s also the season for ROCK 95’s annual Local & Loud, the ultimate band competition.

This is a chance for young, aspiring artists to mix with more seasoned, sometimes semi-professional emerging bands and musicians. A competition of this nature gives artists, singers and songwriters and their bands a chance to compare themselves to some of their regional counterparts who are also trying to make the cut and make a name for themselves in the music industry.

The rewards for winning the competition are pretty cool as well. Your band could win studio time with Wellcraft Music, a video from Lovejoy Productions, professional band photography to help build your “press kit” from Eryn Sipprell Photography, featured air-play as the Local & Loud 2016 Champions, and an opening gig for an upcoming regional rock concert at an Impact Live produced show.
