The 2011-12 Band Tournament will feature a *new format*. Instead of all of
the bands playing in rounds 1 and 2, we will be holding live closed
auditions (qualifying round) in September and October 2011. Bands/Artists
are asked to submit a sample CD with 1-3 songs and can audition for a spot
in the tournament for only $25. If you are selected to advance from the
qualifying round, there will be a tournament entry fee of $125 per band
($175 after Aug. 15). *Your $25 registration fee will be applied towards
the entry fee*. Up to 40 bands will be selected to play live at a
tournament night. The live tournament nights will be more like a concert
with slightly longer set times, feature 5 bands per night and the concerts
starting at 7:30pm. The live tournament will start in January and will
again be hosted at North Central University (located in downtown
Minneapolis). The finals round will also be held at North Central in the
spring and feature all of the great industry judges as well as great prize
packages like previous years.

*Registration is now open and is on a first come, first served basis!* To
register, respond to this email or visit http://www.facebook.com/l/WAQBRiCxbAQDZFY9-3uYreEfvo9vVRRF3-b1uc8pux_3bRg/www.3degreesministries.com.
(REMINDER: Be sure to sign up before August 15th to save $50 off the regular
entry fee!)

*PLEASE NOTE: *Bands/Artists that advanced to Round 3 of the tournament in
the last two years are *pre-qualified for the 2011-12 tournament* and *WILL
NOT* need to audition. Simply register for the Band Tournament and we’ll
schedule you for a live tournament date in January or February.

We look forward to hopefully having you as part of the 2011-12 season of the
3 Degrees Band Tournament.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Planned for the summer, 'Big Vibe' was moved to the Fall as COVID swept the nation. It turns out, the vibes were exactly the breath of fresh air we needed. HM contributing writer Danielle Martin talks with Seaway vocalist Ryan Locke about the band's new era, how they formed their sound for 2020, and why Harry Styles belongs in their lives.
