Last Band Standing Returns for 2011

Last Band Standing comes back for a second year, and now it's free.

Posted By on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 7:51 PM

After a successful inaugural year, Last Band Standing is returning for a second addition of the local battle of the bands. Last year more than 100 local bands and solo artists applied for the competition and after all was said and done, Mosley Wotta walked away with the top prize.

There's a few changes this year in that the competition, which is produced by Combined Communications, is moving to the Century Center, which as far as I'm concerned, is one of Bend's best indoor music spots and seems like a perfect fit for this eclectic music event. Also, the event is now free. You'll be able to pick up free tickets and your voting ballot at the show's sponsor businesses.

If you're a band looking to compete for more than $30,000 in prizes (including a record label offer and recording time), applications open on March 21, so get your demos ready. As of now, the competition is planning on taking 32 bands.

Opening rounds begin on May 6 and the contest finishes on July 8.

UPDATE: Check on March 21 for information on how to apply.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
