Gretsch Is Looking for the World’s Hottest (and Nicest) Unsigned Bands

Not to be outdone by Sabian, Gretsch is also sponsoring a contest for the best unsigned bands. At stake is a grand prize package that includes $20,000 in gear and a slot at Gretsch’s 125th Anniversary Concert in New York City. The details:

  • The contest is open to unsigned and independent label recording acts from the United States, U.K., Canada, Spain, Germany, France, and Japan.
  • Entries will be accepted from May 1 to May 31, 2008.
  • Your band must submit an original song as an MP3.
  • The content of your song submission apparently “cannot be obscene or offensive, endorse any form of hate or hate group or promote any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous,” which most likely means that no remotely interesting bands can participate.
