TALK about WIDESPREAD PANIC!! As my POP SCORE Tumbles and WIDESPREAD PANIC ensues, I desperately adjust my Artist List. (Plus I didn't initially realize Simply Stoopid was a HIP HOP band)

CLARIFICATION OF GAME RULES PLEASE!!

TO PLAY DO YOU NEED TO TARGET ONLY WAKARUSA BANDS OR JUST SPRINKLE THEM IN WITH YOUR OTHER TARGETED BANDS?

i INTERPRETED THE RULES TO MEAN TARGET WAKARUSA BANDS ONLY SO YOU COULD GET AN IDEA IF YOU APPEAL TO THE FANS OF BANDS PLAYING THAT FESTIVAL

IF NOT YOU MIGHT STILL GET A HIGH POP SCORE JUST FROM YOUR NORMAL FAN BASE AND NOT REALLY AN ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF POULARITY WITH WAKARUSA BAND FANS

PLEASE CLARIFY JANGO I NOTICED A LOT OF POSTED ARTISTS HERE STILL HAVE NON WAKARUSA BANDS TARGETED. PLEASE LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD AND PROVIDE CLARIFICATION OF BAND TARGETING FOR THE CONTEST!! THANKS

Press Kit

djkidv Vocal distortions, electronic back beats, mixtures and fusions of sounds and beats that feed the soul. Yes in deed, you can take this music to a dance club and just let loose! djkidv started playing clubs in 1990 when he began making a name for himself. Playing at events like the **** Pride events and private rave parties to where he is today, composing and performing his own creations. djkidv is quite an act. His newest single, “Sacrament”, is off of his self-titled CD. This single is the core of the CD, representing djkidv’s style and attitude. It has an old school feel and is quite unique among other artists of this specific generation. If you want to party, this is the CD to party with. If you are in a sad mood, this is the CD that will take you out of your sadness. Djkidv received a platume Auddy award for the Sacrament and 1994 4th place mixing champion in Alberta. At this time he’s working the party circuit world wide. This CD was released June, 2009 in it’s digital format.

ETHAN KELLER TO RELEASE RECORD PRODUCED BY GRAMMY WINNING PRODUCER TED GREENBERG

Milwaukee, WI – March 27, 2010:
Wisconsin singer-songwriter and national touring artist, Ethan Keller, is set to release a new record, on April 23rd at Club Timbuktu in Milwaukee, WI. Produced by two-time Grammy winner, Ted Greenberg (G. Love, Ben Harper, Chaka Khan), the upcoming release, Profit, was recorded at fellow Milwaukeean Willy Porter’s downtown studio.

Ethan Keller performs at brewing companies, jazz clubs, and hippy fests, so you might not guess he is a practicing Catholic. His father is an ordained priest (who in fact attended seminary with Milwaukee Civil Rights activist, Fr. James Groppi), and his mother was a nun at one time as well. Confirmed in 2004, Ethan has had personal correspondences with long-time Milwaukee Archbishop, now Archbishop of New York, Timothy Dolan.

The Ethan Keller Group debuted in 2004, and was a finalist in Shepherd Express‘s Band Slam Royale in 2007. Since then, Keller has toured mostly solo around the Midwest and east coast, however, in 2010, Keller will be performing with a full 6-10-piece band.

Admission for the record release party will be $10 at the door; doors open at 6:30pm. Club Timbuktu is located at 520 E. Center St. in Milwaukee, WI. For more information visit www.ethakeller.com.

Hello, hello, hello! It's April 5th ... this should of closed yesterday ... but bands/artist are still "entering" the "contest". What's up? Can we please get an update?

Anonymous said...

What about bands that are targeting bands that aren't even on the JANGO bands list? A lot of the WAKARUSA bands are not listed in the JANGO TARGETS List. Does that count? If so what's the point?

Anonymous said...

REPLY to Anonymous (Hello hello hello) above. The rules just say you have to get a POP Score for the week of the 29th-4th and target 5 WAKARUSA bands. It didn't specify when you needed to leave a message with your band selections. Seems like bands who targeted WAKARUSA Bands for only a day might have an advantage over those who targetd them for the whole week, especially if they are not strong matches. Oh well. Although it may be unfair if they didn't target WAKARUSA bands during the week of the 29th - 4th, I am sure the rules behind the rules will be disclosed at some point.

brown said...

sound of there own verrrrrry good band brown is the artist out of houston tx

Anonymous said...

Hello hello hello! Very true ... this whole thing left opportunity to a bunch of loopholes. BUT, in the end WAKARUSA is not going to book a band that sounds like Fall Out Boy or something. So, it would be pretty F'ed up if bands that are not the right fit for WAKARUSA ruined it for the bands that actually could have been booked. In other words, I'm cool with artists using the loopholes as long as they're actually WAKARUSA material.

Jango Airplay said...

Hi All, Jango here.

Submissions are now closed and we're pulling up the 20 bands that qualified that had the best PopScore for last week. We'll announce those 20 soon as well as Wakarusa's to picks.

Thanks for getting involved
