HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO WATCH YOUR BOSS PLAY THE BONGOS? OR MAYBE SEE A COWORKER SHRED A SOLO? WELL THIS SUMMER YOU MAY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY. DAILY IOWAN TV’S JOE FISHER HAS MORE…

THE CORPORATE BATTLE OF THE BANDS IS TAKING TEAM BUILDING EXCERCISES AND DIALING THEM UP TO ELEVEN.

THIS COMPETITION WILL FEATURE A SHOWDOWN OF BANDS WHOM AT LEAST HALF OF THEIR MEMBERS ARE EMPLOYEES AT THEIR RESPECTIVE COMPANIES. ITS AN AMATEUR COMPETITION SO NO PAID PROS ARE ALLOWED.

AS FOR GENRES OF MUSIC-IF LAST YEARS COMPETITION IS ANY INDICATION- NOTHING IS OFF LIMITS.

“WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING…ROCK AND ROLL CERTAINLY. WE HAD A BAND PLAY GREEN DAY. THERE WAS OF COURSE TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.”

 

Take VO (:37-1:05)

ANYONE IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE. LAST YEAR SAW BANDS FROM AN ELECTRIC COMPANY, INSURANCE AGENCY, AND A LIP BALM MANUFACTURER. EVEN CBS 2 NEWS ANCHOR SCOTT SANBORN GOT ON THE DRUMS FOR THE BAND NEWSFLASH.

TO TAKE PART IN THIS COMPETITION, BANDS MUST SUBMIT AN ENTRY FORM AND A THREE SONG DEMO VIDEO. THEN THE BATTLE IS ON. THERE WILL BE A PRELIMINARY QUALIFIER FEATURING 16 OF THE CHOSEN ENTRANTS. FROM THERE, JUDGES WILL CHOOSE THE SIX BANDS THAT MOVE ON TO THE FINALS.

Take SOT – Ashley Levitt (1:05-1:14)

THE WINNING BAND GETS A TRAVELING TROPHY, A THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A CHARITY OF THEIR CHOICE, A GIG AT OUR COOLEST PLACES TO WORK EVENT, AND OF COURSE BRAGGING RIGHTS.
