Band Competition Full

Thank you for your interest in the Band Competition. We are busy listening to all the entries from this year and trying our best to whittle down to the Final 4 or 5. Please stay tuned for those selected to perform at the NWSS 2017.

Our selections do not occur until early May, which should provide time to book the date if you are not selected as one of the four or five finalists. If selected there are likely more playing opportunities at the event, possibly for pay as well although nothing is promised. We appreciate all the hard work and heart that is put into making music and it shows through very vividly!

Congratulations to the Talbot Brothers of Portland Oregon for winning the 2017 Band Competition!
