RAHC Music (pronounced, “rock music”), a Des Moines area Christian Indie record label and division of Renee A Harlem Inc will host Battle of The Bands on Saturday, July 23rd at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown. Come support local artists. Doors open at 6:30pm. Showtime is 7:00pm. Tickets are on sale now at http://revivalmc.org/events or via Eventbrite at http://rahcmusic.eventbrite.com/. General Admission is just $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
The Des Moines event is the kickoff night for a nationwide music tour featuring local artists in various US States. A second Iowa event is also in the works. Band registration for the first Iowa concert closed yesterday with announcement of the first two semi-finalists (in alphabetical order): 1.) Item 9 & The Mad Hatters (Peter Lower, Guitarist / Manager) – visit their website at http://www.item9andthemadhatters.com/; and 2.) Purple Asteroid Cadillac (Dave Ballew, Manager) – visit their website at http://www.purpleasteroidcadillac.com/.
RAHC Music is a trailblazer for indpendent and upcoming artists, providing new and exciting opportunities where local and undiscovered talent gets the spotlight. Band registration is usually free; and artists are not required to sign with the label to participate. Registerd bands selected for the Grand Finale event, perform before a live audience. Headliners volunteer their talent and are not contestants. The organization also provides free services including media promotion, press kit and web design for finalists and contest winners.
While the organization stands firm on its core beliefs, bands are not required to be Christians to vie for opportunites. Although non-Christian bands may have fewer opportunities in the long-run with this Indie label, they will certainly benefit from the exclusive free tools offered to all participants who register for RAHC Music events.
In like momentum, the tour creators are currently working on a stage drama of the same name. Battle of The Bands, the musical, is the true story of how this music tour came to be. This exciting stage rendition is the true story of a homeless woman who started a music tour on a mission. The opportunities keep coming with RAHC Music as the casting director is keen on finding great, yet widely undiscovered talent to fill key roles in this production which promises to rock the nation! Interested talent can view the open casting call and complete the online Talent Interest Submission at http://rahcmusic.wordpress.com/botb/audition/ to be considered for placement. Many performing artists may also be cast from their tour auditions and performances at Battle of The Bands Events. Get your tickets today and come support Iowa artists at Battle of The Bands.
