MOJO RISING New band comp to keep on rising

With the Big Splash band comp on hiatus, Cool Perth Nights has come to the part and announced the all new local band comp Mojo Rising, aimed at emerging WA bands and staged at the much-loved Mojos Bar, one of the most important stages for any local up and coming band to play on.

The competition is a reboot of a talent drive previously run in 2010 which has now been adapted to suit to the realities of the music industry in 2017. Cool Perth Nights’ belief is that plugging a young, fresh-faced band into a supportive network of contacts and carefully guiding them through their first years in the industry is as important, if not more, than a traditional cash prize.

With that in mind, Mojo Rising’s winning band will be nurtured by their team and networks over a year, aiming to give the winner the tools to help themselves. Each competition will judged by a panel of five judges selected from a pool of WA musicians, music industry and media.

Heats take place every Wednesday at Mojos Bar from September 20 – November 8 ($5 entry). Semi finals take place on Friday November 17 and 24 with the Grand Final held on Saturday December 2 ($15 entry).

To enter Mojo Rising, head to Deadline for entries is 5pm, September 7, 2017.
