Local bands are competing against one another on social media for a chance to play at Nikon Jones Beach Theater this summer. Pulse Insider is catching up with the 19 bands competing to help you decide which one to vote for.
Pulse Insider: Give us your six word-pitch for why you win Digital Battle of the Bands:
Number F: We guarantee you’ll dance all night!
Pulse Insider: How did you get your start in music?
Number F: The three gentlemen rockstars had been a group for four years, five now that I, Sara, have joined the festivities. We combined forces after a close mutual friend expressed the need for us all to meet and work together, doing what we all love. Passionate just doesn’t describe how we feel about what we do, our heart and energy go into every song and lyric.
Brad, Alex and Erik all live in western Suffolk/eastern Nassau counties. I came to New York about four years ago, all the way from California.
Pulse Insider: How would you describe your music to someone you just met:
Number F: Our music is a rock-funk-blues-alternative fusion that literally delves into feel-good energy.
Vote for Number F on Facebook.
The bands entered the contest by submitting a not more than 20 second video to the Fit for Fame Facebook app and from now until June 27 anyone can vote for a band’s video on the app. The band that receives the most votes will get to perform at Retro Fitness’s branded Side Stage at Nikon Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 13, 2014.
CEO of Retro Fitness, Eric Casaburi is very excited for the competition.
“Music is the fuel behind fitness,” Casaburi said. “We are holding this competition to help showcase the bands in the local community, because we know there is a ton of musical talent in Long Island. I love listening to live music.
