Local bands are competing against one another on social media for a chance to play at Nikon Jones Beach Theater this summer.
The bands entered a 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.
