CLEARWATER, FL (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
Jennifer Davis, representing Ellio's Rock Star Challenge (http://www.elliosrockstar.com), is scheduled to appear on ScooopRadio October 4, 2006 at 4:05 p.m. EDT to discuss the hottest battle of the bands ever to hit the Web.
"With over 190 bands already signed up, competition to become the first Ellio's Rock Star is heating up, and bands that want to want to enter the contest only have until October 31, 2006 to upload their MP3s and band profiles," said Davis.
Ellio's, the maker of delicious frozen pizzas for more than 40 years, is thrilled that the Rock Star Challenge is making waves across the nation. "So far, bands from 35 different states are represented," said Davis. "New York has the most band registrations and MP3 uploads, followed closely by New Jersey and Florida." Ten bands from Massachusetts have also registered, as well as nine from Alabama. Pennsylvania and Texas follow with eight bands each.
Beginning October 1, fans can help choose Ellio's Rock Star by voting for their favorite songs at http://www.elliosrockstar.com. "Many of the registered bands have generated buzz among their friends and fans, who are ready to cast their votes," said Davis. At the end of January 2007, the top five musicians with the most votes will advance to a final round, where members of Flyleaf, one of this year's hottest new bands, will choose the grand prize winner. The winner will be awarded a three-day recording session with a music producer approved by Flyleaf.
Music fans who comment or vote online will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes for an opportunity to win a Gibson Les Paul Studio Guitar, Klipsch iGroove Stereo Systems, 30GB Apple iPods, iTunes gift certificates, and coupons for a free Ellio's Microwave Cheese Pizza.
