Harrah’s Entertainment and MTV Games are partnering again to host the 2nd Annual Total Rock, Total Rewards Rock Band Competition! Rock Band groups will battle it out for the chance to meet Ringo Starr and receive a check for $10,000!
The national competition will feature 3 phases – local qualifiers, regionals, and the finals in Atlantic City. This year will give even more fans the chance to compete by adding new qualifying locations across the country, including a bar near you! MTV Games will have many more qualifying venues than last year which comprise the first round of the competition.
To win, your Rock Band bands will need to attend a qualifying event (list of locations) and perform from a list of pre-selected songs (list of songs) to earn a qualifying score for the competition. The top 8 bands from each region will be flown to their designated regional competition to battle it out for a spot in the finals in Atlantic City. Here are the official rules, if you are into that sort of thing!
If you want a taste of what it’s like to compete, and ultimately win, the Total Rock Total Rewards competition, check out this video of last year’s winners, The Gurnkillers! I know them all pretty well now, and they are some of the coolest guys I’ve met in the Rock Band community!
