10k Classic Rock Band Challenge

After the rousing success of the 10k Country Band Challenge (where The Clayton Anderson Band was the big winner) French Lick Resort has decided to keep the battle of the bands going and mix things up a bit with some rock n’ roll. The 10k Classic Rock Band Challenge is next on the play list and the entry deadline is fast approaching.

Groups have until July 31 to get in on the month-long competition and vie for the $7,500 first place cash prize. The runner-up will be awarded $2,500.
Bands are encouraged to submit a CD or DVD to the resort with a photo or to upload a video onto YouTube.

The deadline for entries is July 31 and the 16 finalists will be announced on August 4. The finalists will perform live on the casino stage for 30 minutes on weekends August 14-September 12. Fans and supporters, 21 and over, are encouraged to be at the casino during the performances. Judges will take crowd response into consideration when making their decision. The final round is scheduled for September 19 in the resort’s Windsor Ballroom.

There is a $4 cover charge for the preliminary round performances in the casino lounge. Tickets for the final showdown are $10 and may be purchased at the Hoosier Sugar Company in the French Lick Springs Hotel, on Ticketforce or at the door the night of the show.
