Breaking Even in SchoolJam USA Teen Band Contest
|Breaking Even - Logan, Hunter, Halle and Matthew|
The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has announced that Breaking Even is competing in the online round of the 2011-2012 SchoolJam USA teen battle of the bands competition. Local Shreveport teen Matthew Davidson is the guitarist for Breaking Even, the 2011 Kidd Kraddick Rock Camp Band.
Starting Nov. 1, Breaking Even will be featured along with teen bands from across the United States at www.schooljamusa.com, where people from the general public are encouraged to vote for their favorite band everyday. Online voting will run through Nov. 30. (Note: - Click HERE to vote for Breaking Even).
The nationwide contest, sponsored by NAMM, is designed to encourage teen bands across the United States to demonstrate their musical talents and enjoy the many proven benefits of making music.
If Breaking Even receives one of the highest eight scores, determined by the public vote and a panel of music judges, they will be invited to perform live along with seven other bands as finalists at the SchoolJam USA finals. The finals will be held during the NAMM Show, one of the largest musical products exhibitions in the world, on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2011, in Downtown Disney located in Anaheim, Calif.
Reinforcing the competition's mission to encourage active music making among teenagers, all of the eight finalist bands will receive prize money to purchase new gear for their band from a local NAMM Member music products retailer of their choice, as well as additional funding for their school music programs. The winning band will also travel to Europe next year to perform at the 2012 SchoolJam Germany finals in Frankfurt.
