One more act to book at SJ Jazz Summer Fest — Maybe it’s you?
San Jose Jazz still has one more act to book for the upcoming Summer Fest. They need an opener for Monophonics and Morris Day and the Time, playing on the main stage on Friday night, August 10, and they’re holding a contest on Facebook to find that band.
They’re looking for a “Neo Soul, Soul (not hip hop), Rhythm & Blues, Funk, and/or New Orleans Rhythm & Blues” act, with six or fewer members, and able to provide their own transportation to the event. The winning band will be chosen by public votes on the San Jose Jazz Facebook page. The winners will play a 45 minute set, and be paid $500 for their trouble. Applicants should submit an audition video (either YouTube or Vimeo) to the San Jose Jazz Facebook page by July 23.
To vote on your favorite band, you need to “Like” San Jose Jazz on Facebook, then visit their page to see the entries. Voting will be open from July 23 to 27.
