April Rock-N-BowlA Winners Announced!

OurStage and Rock-N-BowlA launched the Rock-N-BowlA Competition in April to give three artists in eleven regional competitions a chance to perform on the national Rock-N-BowlA tour and one grand prize winner an all-expenses-paid trip to Turks & Caicos to perform at GOBeachfest! It’s for a fantastic cause too as the Rock-N-BowlA tour is raising money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. By judging in the “Rock-N-BowlA” Competition, fans have a chance to win two VIP tickets to a Rock-N-BowlA event hosted at their local Lucky Strike bowling alley!

The first phase of regional competitions just wrapped and three winners were chosen from the Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Bellevue, WA regions. One band from each city will perform an opening slot on the Rock-N-BowlA tour stop nearest them. In July, the Grand Prize winner will be the artist that gets the most fans to join their official OurStage Fan Club.

But it’s May and with a new month comes a new round of regions where artists can win!  Check out the first batch of regional winners below and head back over to the Rock-N-BowlA Competition judging page to help pick the next winners for Washington DC, Miami, Chicago and Houston!

Rock, Roll, And Raise Money For A Great Cause

We’re willing to bet you’d like to have a shot at performing at an über-trendy Lucky Strike Lanes near you. We also think you’re probably down to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the beautiful islands of Turks & Caicos to perform for Olympian volleyball players and hundreds of guests at GOBeachfest, 2011. And what if you could get the full rock star treatment, all while supporting a noble cause? Sounds pretty great, huh?

Well, thanks to our friends at Rock-N-BowlA, we’re giving you a shot to do all of the above. This May, artists in the Houston, Miami, DC and Chicago regions have a chance to win by entering their best rock, soft rock, alternative, southern rock, modern rock, indie rock, singer-songwriter (male), singer-songwriter (female), pop or indie pop song. The Top 3 ranked artists in each of these channels will perform at their local Lucky Strike Lanes and gain exposure to fans and critics alike thanks to their rocking tunes and philanthropic mindset. Plus, the band who boasts the highest number of fans in their official OurStage Fan Club when the Rock-N-BowlA summer tour closes out this June will win the trip to Turks & Caicos to perform at GOBeachfest, 2011! It doesn’t get much better than that.

Fans, you’re covered too! All you have to do is judge for a chance to nab two free VIP passes to the Rock-N-BowlA event near you. Just lend us your opinions by May 31, 2011 and you’ll be automatically entered to win.

Ready to rock and bowl? We thought so! You can check out all the contest information on the official rules page.

Indie Rock, Good Times and Bowling…What's Not To Love?

Imagine a massive, high-energy tournament at your local Lucky Strike bowling alley complete with the best local indie bands on stage rocking the night away. That’s just the kind of party that Rock-N-BowlA is looking to throw, and all for the benefit of The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Their mission: raise some serious cash for a seriously good cause.  The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improving therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.

The folks at Rock-N-BowlA and Team Fox are joining forces with OurStage to create a veritable tour-de-force of good times and great music, all for an incredible cause. The Rock-N-BowlA Competition, hosted by OurStage is giving thirty three Phase One finalists, the top three artists from each of eleven regional competition channels, a chance to strut their stuff at a Rock-N-BowlA tour stop in a city near them, not to mention exposure to music critics, media, gift packages and more! In April, all artists in the Los Angeles, Bellevue, Phoenix and Denver regions will compete for the spotlight, with more cities to be announced in May and June. When the fundraising tour wraps in June, the band with the highest number of fans displayed in their official OurStage Fan Club, will be deemed the Grand Prize Winner. The Grand Prize? Oh, just an all expenses paid trip to Turks & Caicos for the band to perform at GOBeachfest, hosting Olympian volleyball players and hundreds of guests. No big deal for your average rock star.

If you live near one of the above cities, and this sounds like your kind of throwdown, enter your best original indie rock song into your regional competition channel by April 22, 2011. ALL artists MUST be twenty-one years of age or older to enter.  It’s a win-win scenario, people. You can rock out, boost your music career AND help raise money for a great cause at the same time!

If you’re a fan, you can be one of five lucky sweepstakes winners who grabs two free VIP tickets to the Rock-N-BowlA event in your hometown, all you need to do is judge! VIP tickets get you access to the celebrity lounge and a chance to walk down the red carpet! Weigh in by April 30, 2011 for your chance to party like a rock star.
