What is Rockliscious Battle of the Bands?

We're taking the excitement of a live show with multiple female-led bands and using social media and online voting to drive interest, active participation, and brand awareness that will benefit the venue, sponsors, artists and the community at large.

The Battle of the Bands will be a live showcase of 4 bands chosen via Social Media campaigns that will compete for a cash prizes. Bands can submit their group online. The top 20 will be posted on the website and social media pages where fans can vote for their favorite. The top four bands will be chosen to perform at the live event based on the fan votes and panel selection.

During the live event, the winning band will be chosen based on crowd response and a panel of judges.

What kind of bands can submit?

We're looking for female-led bands, with a minimum of 3 members, that fit into the Rock, Pop, R&B and Country genres that thrive on playing live shows. Covers are fine, but originals are strongly encouraged. Bands that are scheduled to play at the Kelsey Theater during the month of August and September 2018 are not eligible. No backing tracks will be allowed at the final show.

What do you mean by female-led bands?

At the very minimum, if you have a band with a women lead on vocals, we consider it a female-led band. However, we would love to see bands with more than one talented lady involved. So whether you have one female lead vocalist or a whole band comprised of kick-ass women, you fit the Rockliscious bill.

Is there an age minimum?

No. We've decided to make this an all access event. However, if bander members under 18 that make it to the final four will have to have a signed waiver from their parental / guardian peeps.

Tell me more about the prizes.

The grand prize winner will take home $1000 and the runner up will receive $500. Not too shabby.

Rockliscious - Promoting Women in Music

The impact of women in music is powerful.

It's a movement that is starting to gain much needed traction and one we feel very passionate about. That's why we're putting together special events that give woman a platform to "share their voice," to celebrate their diversity and richness, and more importantly, to give back to the community.

Rockliscious concerts showcase women musicians with live concerts, acoustic sessions, singer/songriter workshops, and most recently, a Battle of the Bands.

Our 2017 inaugural tour featured Danielle Nicole, Betty Fox, Ladies of Soul, Abbey Owens, Jodi Gaines and Cassie Ortiz performing live at Terra Fermata and The Funky Biscuit. This fall, we're proud to partner with The Kelsey Theater to produce all kinds of exciting shows featuring women in music. Stay tuned for show announcements.
