How do I sign my business up?
Registration for ABR 2016 will last from February 1st through February 29th.  The registration form can be found at https://nuci.wufoo.com/forms/athens-business-rocks-2016-registration/ (Registration is now closed.)  There is a $50 non-refundable registration fee that will be processed through paypal. The event will take place on Saturday, May 14th (one night only) at the 40 Watt. The top ten fundraising “Finalist” bands will compete for the Grand Prize. The Band in 11th place will perform while we tally the results for the awards.  The line-up will also be based on fundraising totals and will be determined on Friday, April 29th. If you are at the top of the list, you will get to choose your time slot and/or have more control as to when your band performs.  The idea is to fundraise early and practice as the date approaches. Please note that ABR 2016 is taking place on the Saturday night of UGA Graduation weekend. The Graduation Commencement Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 13th.

You can start fundraising as soon as you are registered!

What do we do next?
Choose a band name and up to 3 cover songs to perform. The performance time limit is 15 minutes. Nuçi’s Space will provide 10 free hours of rehearsal time for each band. To reserve a rehearsal room, simply call us at 706.227.1515. If you require more practice beyond ten hours, we have very reasonable hourly rates.

What information do we need from you?

  • Your Band Name
  • How many members are in your band? We need everyone’s name!
  • We need your company/business logo in the following format-gif, png or jpeg  ASAP
  • Your set list
  • If you have any other image or text  you want us to upload on your band page, send them over!

How do we fundraise?
Points are awarded based on your efforts to raise money for Nuçi’s Space, so every dollar counts. Bands will receive 1 point for every dollar raised. Contact co-workers, friends, families and other businesses and start promoting your band and the event. Each band will be assigned a Nuçi’s Space Employee as well as a Board Member to help raise money. Ask your employer if you can promote the event to your customers. Encourage everyone to come out and watch your band play. You will earn points for every attendee at the door who says they are there to see you play!

The band that raises the most money will be titled ABR Grand Champion 2016. Prizes will also be awarded for Crowd favorite and Judges Favorite.
