The “Big Sturgis Band Search” is seeking bands to play the largest music festival in motorcycling. Bands interested in performing now have that opportunity as Sturgis Buffalo Chip has launched its first ever online submission platform. $10,000 in prize money is being offered as well as a performance slot on the same stage as acts like Motley CrЯe, Zac Brown, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and many others during the August music festival.
The interactive platform, located at http://bigsturgisgig.com, allows fans to explore up-and-coming bands and vote for and share their favorites. A celebrity judging panel will then review the 10 top-scoring bands. Judges for the contest include Pat Simmons (Doobie Brothers); Dee Snider (Twisted Sister); Phil Jaurigui (Swing House Studios President), and veteran booking agents from some of the nation’s most renowned agencies. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2014.
