Musicians are encouraged to submit a video of themselves jamming, soloing and shredding to win the chance of playing onstage with bluegrass legend Del McCoury at the first annual Jomeokee Music and Arts Festival this September 14-16, 2012.
One winner will receive 2 artist guest credentials to Jomeokee Fest and a once in a lifetime opportunity of playing in front of a live audience alongside the Del McCoury Band.
The Contest begins on July 13, 2012 at noon and ends on August 10, 2012 at 11:59 pm ET (the "Entry Period").
All entrants must subscribe to the Jomeokee Fest YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/jomeokeefest). To enter, musicians must submit and upload a live performance video as a response to Del's contest video on the Jomeokee Fest YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/jomeokeefest. Video entries must be less than two minutes in length. Entrants are asked to submit videos that showcase their skill. Video entries do not have to be of a full song - feel free to edit a previous performance that showcases a solo or particularly engaging moment. All instruments are encouraged to apply, but keep in mind: the winner will be performing with a band comprised of mostly acoustic instruments, therefore, heavy effects are discouraged. The sound for the video must be from the original recording, videos with an audio track overlaid will not be considered. The contest is open to all ages and entries must be received by August 10, 2012.
