We’ve talked about it for months, now it’s here!
The MHK Musician Mashup will take willing members from the MHK music scene and mix them up, forming new groups tasked with three objectives:
1) Create a name for the new band.
2) Create one original song, and choose one cover.
3) Create a single piece of merchandise promoting the new band (t-shirt, underwear, coozie, sticker, etc).
They will have two weeks to do all this.
On Wednesday May 28th, we will draw out names to create 3-4 member bands. Once the new bands are created, they have until June 13th at 7pm to get all their stuff ready.
Then each band will take the stage in turn!
The winner(s) will be decided by both popular vote and judging from local entertainment fiends. There will be a winner for each category (best name, performance, and merch) of $50 each and an overall grand prize of $500!
The judges for the MHK Musician Mashup will be:
- Sarah Sue from Sisters of Sound Records.
- Shawn Rock from 1015 KROCK.
- And Carl Stunkel, because he’s awesome.
Now you know who to bribe!
The merch created by the bands will be raffled off to the audience and the proceeds donated to Four Paws Rescue of Kansas!
