MANILA, Philippines - Attention all students! Drop your notes, textbooks and energy drinks. School’s still in but The Marty’s are coming.
Oishi is giving fresh music talents a new reason to rock this semester, with a battle to make it big in the music scene as The Marty’s. What sets it apart from other inter-college band face-offs is that instead of sending bands into battle, The Marty’s will bring aspiring musicians from various universities together, so they can heat up the stage and rock as one band.
The contest is open to all Filipino college students, between 16 and 25 years old, living in Metro Manila within school year 2012 to 2013. Aspiring vocalists, guitarists, drummers and bassists may join by heading on to www.themartys.com.ph, signing up and uploading a two- to three-minute audition video.
The judges include Ramon Bautista, rock advocate Gang Badoy, Saab Magalona and rocker-director RA Rivera. Eight finalists will be chosen, but only four will make The Marty’s. The final four get to tour as a band, win P100,000, and might just be well on their way to be part of Manila’s band scene.
Even the fans get their own fun once the finalists are in, because The Marty’s website will give them a new web experience where they’ll get the opportunity to virtually manage and interact with their band favorites. They even get to choose the final four band mates. And what’s more perfect than a band handpicked by none other than their own fans?
So, get ready, The Marty’s are here!
