Send Us Your “Grooviest” Song by 4/26 for a Chance to Win Huge Prizes!

Our Spring 2012 “In The Groove” Song Contest is officially OPEN!

Submissions are totally free, and if your song is chosen as one of the Top 3, you’ll win awesome prizes and mass exposure (see details below)!

Send us your “grooviest” song to thegroove@berklee.edu by 11:59 PM on Thursday, April 26th for your chance to be one of the three finalists who will perform LIVE at our end-of-semester party on Friday, May 4th (more details to come soon). This year, the audience will choose the winner!

Here are the details:
1. Send an email to thegroove@berklee.edu with the subject “(YOUR NAME HERE) IS IN THE GROOVE!” and attach an MP3 of your BEST and grooviest song (one submission per person only). You must be the songwriter AND the copyright holder or we cannot and will not accept your submission. It can be of any genre as long as it has a groove!

2. In the body of the email, please include the following information: your name, semester, principal instrument, major, phone number, the title of the song, your role(s) in the recording (i.e. producer, lead vocals, guitar, etc.) and if you are available from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM on Friday, May 4th.

3. You will be judged on the music, lyrics, arrangement and originality. You will not be heavily judged on production quality; however, we must be able to hear all parts of the song clearly.

4. The deadline for submissions is THURSDAY, APRIL 26th at 11:59 P.M. EST. Any submission received after that will not be accepted. There will be no exceptions.

5. The three finalists will be announced on our Facebook page and through email on Monday, April 30th. Each finalist will perform (acoustically) the song they submitted at our party on Friday, May 4th, sometime between 5:30 and 7:30 P.M. in the SAC Lounge at 921 Boylston St. on the 3rd floor. The audience members’ votes will determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
