RJL BATTLE OF THE BANDS IS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS

There is a contest that nimbit sponsors every year that is put on by a non-profit organization run by a generous couple as a tribute to their late, talented son’s passion for music. The promoters really get behind the winning artist, helping them record and press a new album. And they put the extra time in to help keep the winning band on track to complete an album. This year they have combined the contest with an event “Band Camaro Rock and Roll Boot Camp. In addition there will be $10,000 + in prizes. Every band wins something cool. Submission deadline is June 22nd. The competition is Saturday, August 16th. Go here to sign up: www.rjlmemorialfund.org
