CARTERET – Local music groups are invited to participate in Carteret’s Battle of the Bands next month. The free event, presented by Mayor Dan Reiman and the Carteret Arts Committee, will take place at Carteret Waterfront Park on Saturday, Aug. 20, beginning at 5 p.m.
The friendly competition is open to amateur musical performers of any genre. Musicians may perform original songs or covers. A range of prizes will be given to the winners.
To participate, performers must submit a registration form and a CD with three sample songs to be performed at the night of the event no later than Thursday, Aug. 11. The CDs will be used to allow event coordinators to screen material to ensure that songs are free of profanity or other content that could offend audience members. The recordings do not need to be studio-quality demos.
Performers will be allowed to submit a web banner and one recording in MP3 or MP4 format to be posted on the Battle of the Bands page on the borough’s website.
