The Minnesota Twins and 96.3 K-TWIN are proud to announce the return of Twins Midwest Music Showcase in 2014, a series of ten live music events occurring during Twins games at Target Field. Every Wednesday home game from May through September, local bands will perform original songs live from the left field balcony during pregame, inning breaks and pitching changes.
In addition, local bands will have the opportunity to perform at Target Field by participating in "The Sound Factor" contest. Local musicians are encouraged to send samples of their work for on-air consideration to 96.3 K-TWIN, the radio home of the Minnesota Twins. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of station judges including Bobby Z, drummer for Prince and the Revolution and host of the "The Sound" (Sunday nights at 8 p.m.) on 96.3 K-TWIN, which features Minnesota artists and their works.
The station judges and Bobby Z will select three finalists. Fans will then get the opportunity to vote for their favorite of the three bands, with the winner performing live at Target Field on Wednesday, Sept. 24. Fans should stay tuned to 96.3 K-TWIN for more information.
Submissions should be sent with one song and brief band/performer bio to:
Midwest Music Showcase
420 North 5th Street
Minneapolis, MN 55401
Or via email: Contest@KTWIN.com
Submissions for "The Sound Factor" contest will be accepted from Wednesday, May 15 until Wednesday, July 31.
