At Greenwich, our favorite pizzas come about from inspiring combinations of your favorite tastes! Other than the several combinations that make up our famous pizzas, Greenwich believes that the best combination for a fun time is delicious food, great music, and best friends.
Having this formula in mind, this year, Greenwich is introducing the first ever #UltimateBandkada Search– the search for the best bands that can get creative from playing musical instruments to mixing and mashing up genres! With mash ups of music like pop, rock, hip-hop and EDM, Greenwich believes that the best flavors of music can be fused into one super sound.
Greenwich is inviting bands that may be composed of rappers, singers, instrument players or DJs to join the search that challenges them to mash up at least 2 of the mentioned music genres into one winning combination in one song.
Musicians from 18-35 years old have two ways of joining: 1. Send a link of a 60-second video of their band’s musical performance via www.ultimatebandkada.com or 2. Student musicians can visit one of several Greenwich #UltimateBandkada audition booths that will be popping up on campuses around the Metro. Students and non-students can go to the live auditions in these areas as well as at the Greenwich main office in Ortigas, Pasig City. Auditions will run from March 11-21 so keep an eye out for when the #UltimateBandkada booth will be popping up in your area.
On April 23, Greenwich will announce the Top 8 bands that made the cut to compete for the title of Greenwich’s #UltimateBandkada. The bands each be given lyrics to a Greenwich song which they will create music for with their chosen music genres. The judges of the competition are some of the country’s most esteemed individuals of their craft. The judges will be announced in the next months.
For three months, these 8 Bandkadas will be trained by the industry’s top musicians, artists, producers and vocal coaches, coming from Viva Records. These mentors will aid in the preparation for the final #UltimateBandkada showdown which will be held in August. Not only will the bands undergo an intensive Bandkada Bootcamp, but they will use this time to develop an original Greenwich song that embodies friendship, sharing and fun while mashing up the identified major music genres. This will serve as their final piece for the competition.
The public can also keep track of the bands’ progress through the videos that will be posted on the #UltimateBandkada website, newspaper features and special segments on MTV Pinoy. Everyone can also participate by voting for their favorite band from May to July.
From the auditions to the bootcamp, all the months of hardwork of the first ever #UltimateBandkada winner shall be rewarded by signing a record deal with the country’s top music label, VIVA Records, a management contract with Viva Artist Agency and a cash prize of PHP100,000. The second and third placers will receive P60,000 and P40,000 each respectively.
The experience couldn’t get any better. So what are you still sitting around for? Get the band together and start tuning those guitars and warming up your mixers for the hippest music competition yet. Your band might just be Greenwich’s first #UltimateBandkada!
